If you are interested in having CaterZen run your credit cards for you, there are two gateways that CaterZen is intergrated with:

 

Authorize.net

 

BrainTree

 

Authorize.net is the gateway (can use any processor).   As of the writing of this article, Authorize.net charges $25 per month for their gateway solution.  .10 per transaction and .10 per daily batch. 

 (pricing page for Authorize.net)


Clients can get an e-commerce merchant account from any entity that provides merchant accounts (such as your bank).  Examples:  Bank of America, World Pay, Wells Fargo, Cayan to name a few.

 

CaterZen recommends Braintree to everyone for several reasons.  There are no minimums or statement charges and 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction.  Please keep in mind that includes Amex and considering just about every catering order is with a card not present, that is a great rate.


*  IC + 0.25% + 0.30 per transaction for Visa, MasterCard, and Discover
*  IC + 0.25% + 0.30 per transaction for aggregated American Express
