Property Management Merchant Account
Easily Manage Tenant Payments & Maximize Cash Flow
As a property management company, you’re always balancing the demands of your tenants, staff, and vendors. Tailored Transactions understands this delicate balance, and we can help by simplifying your payment acceptance with smarter, faster and more cost-effective solutions.
Property managers will reduce their credit card processing fees by taking advantage of Cost-Plus Pricing and the Real Estate Credit Classification. These programs will ensure that your business pays the lowest possible processing rates and fees for your credit card transactions.
Look At Your Credit Card Processing Statement
Do you see ANY of the following downgrades listed on your recent monthly statement?
- Qualified or Qual
- Mid-Qualified or MQual
- Non-Qualified or NQual
- Standard or STND
- Electronic or ELEC
- Level 1
- Data Rate 1 or DR1
- Bill-Back - example: FEB BB195 Transaction Cleared...
If the answer is YES, this indicates your merchant account is setup incorrectly, and your business is overpaying for credit card processing.
What is Cost-Plus Pricing?
The pricing method that we use is called Cost-Plus Pricing, also known as Interchange Plus Pricing. It works by passing through your credit and debit card transactions at their respective interchange rates with only a small markup added.
Interchange rates are the wholesale processing rates set by Visa, MasterCard, and Discover and they differ according to card type and transaction type. i.e., swiped, key-entered, or online.
Cost-Plus Pricing can reduce your monthly credit card processing fees up to 35% or more, which could save your business thousands of dollars in processing costs annually.
The Real Estate Credit Classification
Both MasterCard and Discover offer reduced interchange rates on consumer credit card transactions to property management and real estate companies. These reduced rates apply to swiped, keyed-in, and online payments. See the chart below.
Your business must be setup with a property management merchant account, and have the correct MCC Code registered with MasterCard and Discover to qualify for these special rates.
We will handle this registration process for you when setting up your merchant account.
