Effective October 1, 2019, there are a number of new and revised fee structures being implemented by Mastercard. Wind River Financial believes in transparency of all association fees applicable to your merchant processing costs, so we will be passing through these new fees with no mark-ups or changes.

There are hundreds of fee structures and not all are applicable to all card types or to all merchants, so detailed below are the few that will affect most merchants’ day-to-day transaction processing costs. You can view a full listing of these new fees here.
