Merchant Service Fees for processing card transactions

Westpac offers negotiated pricing for processing card transactions, to Retail NZ members 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 Fees*
Card present Interchange + 0.28%
Card not present Interchange + 0.35%
More than $15k per month via a linked gateway
Interchange + 0.80%
Less than $15k per month via a linked gateway
Interchange + 1.10%

*Requires a Westpac settlement account to receive the negotiated Merchant Service Fee, due to Anti-money laundering (AML) requirements.
