Merchant Service Fees for processing card transactions

From 1 May 2019, Retail NZ members will have a new pricing structure for processing card transactions through Westpac. This new pricing structure is called Interchange Plus.

Interchange Plus means that you'll be charged two rates for each transaction:

  1. A variable rate for the interchange fee that is set by the card schemes; and
  2. A separate combined fixed rate for all other scheme, switch and acquirer (Westpac) fees - this is the rate negotiated for Retail NZ members.

Transaction type Main bank* Non Main bank*
Card present Interchange + 0.28% Interchange + 0.53%
Card not present Interchange + 0.35% Interchange + 0.60%
More than $15k per month via a linked gateway
Interchange + 0.80% Interchange + 1.05%
Less than $15k per month via a linked gateway
Interchange + 1.10% Interchange + 1.35%

*Fees depend on whether your settlement account is with Westpac. Please contact Westpac for more information on whether you meet the criteria for a main bank customer.
