NEW STRAIGHTFORWARD RATES
Clear and simple pricing
THERE’S NO DOUBT that offering your
customers the ability to use credit cards to purchase products and services is a great advantage
for you and for them. But it comes with costs.
And with many merchant credit card services,
trying to decipher those costs can be baffling.
If you’ve been using credit card processing,
you know the pricing structure can be a maze
of ever-changing costs, depending on the type
of card. That’s why Elavon, Costco Services’
Merchant Credit Card Processing provider,
is introducing Clear and Simple Pricing.
With Clear and Simple Pricing, mer-
chants pay 2. 49 percent per swipe, or 3. 49
percent plus 15 cents per keyed transaction.
There’s no guesswork needed on your part as
to how much it will cost. A monthly mini-
mum charge applies when transaction fees
and per-item charges are less than $5 per
month. There are no upfront or monthly fees
for Costco Executive Members. (Non-
Executive members pay a $25 application fee
and a $4.95 monthly statement fee.)
Bakery adds Costco
Services to the mix
THE NORTH CAROLINA mountain town of Hendersonville has plenty of attractions, including
four distinct seasons, historical sites and
museums, and beautiful scenery. Add one more
to the list: Underground Baking Company
( http://undergroundbaking.com), the city’s
first organic bakery.
Who. Co-owners Lisa Hoffman and
Matthew Hickman opened the bakery, which
serves freshly baked artisan breads and pas-tries, in 2009 after working as pastry chefs at
top restaurants across the country. Being
Costco members helped give them the confidence to go into business for themselves.
“Costco Services were part of our plan and
projection,” explains Hickman. “We knew that
Costco had already vetted their business partners, so we knew we could trust the quality.”
What. Underground keeps the cash flowing
smoothly with Elavon, Costco’s Merchant Credit
Card Processing provider. “Elavon has great customer service and understandable pricing,”
Hickman says. “Their service and reliability take
a great weight off my shoulders. We’d use them
even if they were more expensive.” As an
Executive Member, Hickman saves even more.
Why. Hickman and Hoffman also use
Costco Services for their business checks, auto
and home insurance, online investing and identity theft protection. They save about $500 per
year by insuring their business and personal
vehicles and home through Ameriprise Auto
& Home Insurance, and about $1,800
per year by using other
“We feel we have
something in common
with Costco,” explains
Hickman. “They offer
excellent value at
an excellent price.
