In case of an Add Funds Transaction, you have the option of crediting your Customers / Sub-Resellers with the Net amount that 2Checkout credits you with, or choose to credit them with the Gross funds and bear the charges yourselves. The Net amount is calculated by subtracting the per transaction charges from the transaction amount. The per transaction charges are calculated by adding the Total Fixed fee charged per transaction and the Total Variable fee charged per transaction.
Total Fixed fee charged per transaction for your merchant account (Per Transaction Fixed Fee charged by your Bank + Per Transaction Fixed Fee charged by the 2Checkout Credit Card Gateway): Enter the total fixed fee that is charged per transaction in the given textbox. This information is primarily used to calculate the Net amount that your Merchant Account is credited with, if you choose to credit your Customer / Sub-Reseller with the Net amount in an Add funds Transaction. Your bank and/or your gateway may be charging you a different amount of fixed fee per transaction for different credit card types, e.g., a certain fixed fee per transaction for Visa cards and a different fixed fee for American Express cards. In case, the amount of fixed fee is different per credit card type, then enter the highest amount of fixed fees charged per transaction to your account, e.g., if the total fixed fee for Visa Cards is 25 cents per transaction and the total fixed fee for American Express cards is 30 cents per transaction, then enter 0.30 in the textbox. If there is no fixed fee charged per transaction then enter 0.
Total Variable fee charged per transaction for your merchant account: Enter the total variable fee that is charged per transaction in the given textbox. This information is primarily used to calculate the Net amount that your Merchant Account is credited with, if you choose to credit your Customer / Sub-Reseller with the Net amount in an Add funds Transaction. Your bank and/or your gateway may be charging you a different amount of variable fee per transaction for different credit card types, e.g., a certain variable fee per transaction for Visa cards and a different variable fee for American Express cards. In case, the amount of variable fee is different per credit card type, then enter the highest amount of variable fees charged per transaction to your account, e.g., if the total variable fee for Visa Cards is 2.50% per transaction and the total variable fee for American Express cards is 3.00% per transaction, then enter 3.00 in the textbox. If there is no variable fee charged per transaction then enter 0.Note
