Competitive fees and charges

Barclaycard payment terminals can make it very cost-effective to start taking card payments. Our charges are based on your turnover, as well as the average value of your transactions and the ratio of credit to debit card payments. We like our customers to know exactly what they’re paying for. So we’ve divided our fees into four main types:

  • A joining fee, to cover the cost of setting up your account
  • A percentage of credit card payments you accept. Which means you won’t pay more unless you earn more
  • A flat fee for every Direct Debit transaction
  • A rental charge for any terminals you hire from us
