Clover Credit Card Surcharging Rate

The merchant discount rate is equivalent to a 3% surcharge rate:

  • Surcharge Rate: 3%
    • Merchant charges the consumer 3% on the sale amount 
    • Example: A $100 sale plus a 3% surcharge results in a total sale amount of $103.00 charged to the cardholder
      • $100 (sale) plus (+) $3.00 (3% surcharge)= $103.00 (customer total)
  • Discount Rate: 2.9126%
    • Merchant is billed 2.9126% on the total amount of the transaction
    • Example: Merchant is billed 2.9126% on the $103.00, which equals the $3.00 surcharge billed to the cardholder – merchant amount equates to the consumer surcharge amount
      • $103.00 (settled) minus (-) $3.00 (discount rate)= $100 (merchant net funded)
