Get more services without the extra fees.
We advocate on your behalf. Merchants in the U.S. pay over $100 billion every year in interchange fees for electronic payments — a growth of 72% from 2009 to 2018. A large portion of these fees go toward paying cash back and other rewards programs for card members. At Cobalt, we have an entire team that works on sellers’ behalf to negotiate with banks and card networks to keep rates as low as possible for our sellers.
