Property Management Merchant Account

Easily Manage Tenant Payments & Maximize Cash Flow

As a property management company, you must constantly balance the needs of your tenants, staff, and vendors. Tailored Transactions understands this delicate balance, and we can help you by simplifying your payment acceptance with smarter, faster, and more cost-effective solutions.

Property managers can save money on credit card processing fees by utilizing Cost-Plus Pricing and the Real Estate Credit Classification.

These two programs will ensure that your company pays the lowest processing fees on all credit and debit card payments processed.

Examine Your Credit Card Processing Statement

Do you see ANY of the following terms listed on your most recent credit card processing statement?

  • Qualified or Qual
  • Mid-Qualified or MQual
  • Non-Qualified or NQual
  • Standard or STND
  • Electronic or ELEC
  • Level 1
  • EIRF
  • Data Rate 1 or DR1
  • Bill-Back - example: FEB BB195 Transaction Cleared...

If the answer is YES, your business is paying too much for credit card processing.

What Is Cost-Plus Pricing?

We use a pricing model known as Cost-Plus Pricing, also known as Interchange Plus Pricing. It works by passing through your credit card transactions at their respective interchange rates with only a small markup.

Interchange rates are the wholesale processing rates set by Visa, MasterCard, and Discover, and they vary depending on card type and transaction type. i.e. swiped, keyed-in, or online.

Cost-Plus Pricing can reduce your monthly credit card processing fees by up to 35% or more, potentially saving your business thousands of dollars in processing fees each year.

Cost Plus Pricing

The Real Estate Credit Classification

MasterCard and Discover both offer reduced interchange rates on consumer credit card transactions to property management and real estate companies.

These lower rates apply to swiped, keyed-in, and online payments. Please see the chart below.

Card Type Rate
Debit 0.05%
Credit 1.10%
Enhanced 1.10%
World 1.10%
World Elite 2.20%
High Value 2.20%

To qualify for these special rates, your company must have a property management merchant account set up, and the correct MCC Code registered with MasterCard and Discover.

When we set up your merchant account, we will handle the registration process for you.
