What are the benefits of Level 2 processing to the merchant? Level 2 processing requires merchants to include additional information on each transaction processed. In exchange for this additional information and the larger size of the transaction, the credit card companies offer lower interchange fees. Acceptance of Level 2 payments reduces your fees and increases your profits. Plus, this capability allows you to expand your customer base to include companies that use Level 2 credit cards. Free Merchant Terminal provides the specialized solution that allows you to accept business, purchasing and corporate card transactions.
