Vendors Why pay 2.70% vs 1.9% to accept a Government P-card?


With the many challenges facing contractors today, it’s no wonder that they have relied on their banks to set-up their credit card processing.

It’s regrettable that many in the contracting industry are unaware of the advantages that correct processing solutions can present.

To support acceptance of corporate & government P-cards,  MasterCard & Visa  have reduced interchange  rates associated with these cards if Level-2 & Level-3 data is included in the transaction report.

As Stated on the GSA Site:

MasterCard and Visa have created special rates to support Purchase Card programs reducing a vendors transaction costs (Interchange) if Level-3 line item detail information is transmitted with the card payment file.

By providing Level-3 data, a supplier may reduce their credit card processing fees – often by 30% to 40%.


Revolution Payments developed the technology to help contractors meet these requirements resulting in qualifying for MasterCard and Visa’s lower rates.

These reduced rates are passed on to the contractor dramatically lowering their fees and  saving in many cases as much as 40% on your fees.

It has been our experience that the vast majority of contractors (75 to 80%) that engage in B2B and B2G processing are not aware of or properly set-up to take advantage of MasterCard and Visa’s special rates on the Corporate and Purchase Card programs.
