Buy Rate

The acquiring bank’s fee; it is equal to interchange (which is paid to the issuing bank) plus the acquiring bank’s markup. Think of it as the wholesale price of a transaction to which processing and other fees are added to come up with the cost to a merchant. Buy rates have not been widely used since the multitude of interchange rates came into being; many ISOs and acquirers now use pricing models that involve splits of net revenue.
