Moolah Pricing, Rates & Fees

 

Moolah has one flat rate for all transactions. Regardless of whether your customer gives you credit, debit, or rewards cards, and whether it's a Mastercard, Visa, American Express, or Discover, you pay the same flat rate. This rate is a little above average for in-person transactions, but lower than average for card-not-present or online transactions.

You get an Authorize.Net payment gateway for free as part of your Moolah subscription, saving you $25 in monthly fees if you had registered directly with Authorize.Net. The pricing for using this online system is as follows:


  • 69% + $0.29 per transaction or,

  • $19.95 monthly minimum, whichever is greater


There is also the option of choosing a free Poynt Smart Terminal if you prefer in-person transactions. The pricing for it is as follows:

  • 69% + $0.29 per transaction or,

There are a few costs you might incur on a case by case basis. For instance, if you issue a refund, you need to pay the $0.29 transaction fee. If a customer disagrees with a transaction, you need to pay $25 in chargeback fees.
