A Service Fee is a fee that the government, education and utility industries are allowed to assess for credit card transactions verses other forms of payments (such as cash or check). A Service Fee is paid directly by the individual consumer who chooses to pay via their credit card, or with an electronic check online.
If a Service Fee model is chosen, the individual consumer choosing to pay with a credit card or electronic check will pay a Service Fee. There are no set-up fees, monthly fees or processing fees assessed to the municipality. If you do not choose to utilize a Service Fee model, the municipality could absord the processing fees instead.
