If you are interested in having CaterZen run your credit cards for you, there are two gateways that CaterZen is intergrated with:
Authorize.net is the gateway (can use any processor), but is not a PCI compliant solution. 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.
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. They are PCI compliant, 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
