The Sagepay and Paypal costs are taken from their respective websites and we assume Paypal Pro is used at over £72,000 annual turnover. The cardswitcher costs are based on pricing as at August 2014 from one Cardswitcher partner. The pricing is dependent on your annual turnover and ranges from 17p – 24p for debit cards and 1.29% – 1.69% for credit cards with a minimum monthly service charge of £15. Cheaper pricing may be available so click “Get detailed quotes” below to find out. Note, the calculator above assumes no business/premium cards, refunds or chargebacks and that all transactions are secure, otherwise there would be additional charges across the suppliers. Costs above are rounded to the nearest pound.
