*Explanation Monthly Minimum: This processing fee is collected by your transaction and discount rate fees from your credit card sales each month. So, for example, your monthly minimum is $25, if the transaction and discount rate fees collected by the processing company add up to and equal or go over $25 that month, no monthly minimum will be charged. However, if the fees for that month do not meet the $25 monthly minimum, you will then be charged the difference. You can avoid this fee in many cases by just processing around a thousand dollars per month.
