As with any merchant account, fees and percentages are paid to maintain service. There are many different factors that come into play, so donations vary based on the type of business, how it processes, volume, etc. The owners, Renee and David, donate a portion of every swipe once all the fees are taken out.
They change on a needs basis, and we continually take applications. You’re able to choose from our carefully vetted list, located on www.esbcharity.org
Absolutely! A portion of every swipe is donated in your company name, so you receive recognition for your participation. We simply can’t do this without you!
