How much does an online payment solution cost?

It can be difficult to keep track of costs when accepting card payments. There are several different "providers" that need to work together to make a payment solution work.

To calculate the cost of your payment solution, you need to look at both the cost of the payment gateway and the acquirer.

What is a payment gateway? A payment gateway is the web part of a payment solution. They control the content of the window you see on your screen where you can enter your card number.

Examples of payment gateways are Quickpay, Billwerk+, PensoPay
What is an acquirer? The acquirer is the company that handles the money. They are the ones who contact Visa or Mastercard, the customer's bank and your own bank to move money.

Examples of acquirers are: Clearhaus, NETS, Swedbank
Example: QuickPay + Clearhaus When we create payment solutions in, we use these two providers. Both need to be set up and "work together" before you have a complete payment solution.

At the moment, their prices are as follows.

QuickPay: automatically switches to the cheapest option every month (based on your turnover).

Clearhaus: 1.35% of the transaction amount (2.75% for foreign cards). See their prices here.
