Footnotes

Customers who wish to obtain payment processing services from Chase must submit an application. All applications are subject to Chase’s standard approval policies and procedures, including without limitation credit approval and entering into a Merchant Agreement with Chase. Certain conditions apply. Proof of membership status with CFIB will be required. 

The potential savings is based on the following assumptions:
• You are currently priced using a merchant discount rate pricing methodology 
• All other processing rates and fees (including Non-Qualified Transaction Processing Fee, terminal rental fees, assessment fees, and monthly administrative fees) are equal
• The mix of card types (for example, rewards, partner, business, etc.) you accept remains the same
•  65% of your credit transactions are from Visa cards, and 35% are from Mastercard cards
• This compares your current Merchant Discount Rate to Chase’s CFIB Visa MDR of 1.4296% and Mastercard MDR of 1.2696%
