If they are not listed, follow the steps here - if you don't see your provider, choose to manually upload a statement.
It’s likely you will have one contract for your terminal hire or gateway, and another for your acquiring service. If your acquiring service provider is listed, then you can compare via that route, if not, then please upload invoices from both and we will take it from there.
No problem, either connect with each individually, or upload statements or invoices for both and we can help you from there.
Yes! The best thing to do is connect with us, or upload your invoices and we will come back to you if we have any questions about your set up.
We include in your comparison all card schemes which we can see in your data that you have processed transactions, apart from Amex. This is because our panel of providers will refer you to Amex for a direct agreement.
No, the service is free to use for merchants. Fee Checkers will receive a small fee from your new provider, if you decide to go ahead via our service.

No, although if your current provider is a member of our service, they will be included in the comparison for you to view against other providers.
No, we compare against providers signed up to our service, who typically have the lowest fees as they are happy to compete in a transparent comparison tool.
Each comparison is different, and is based on your business’ transactional footprint. This means you likely get different comparisons based on the risk profile of your footprint.
We use the data that we are provided by your current provider, or what has been uploaded by yourself. Sometimes, if we were only able to access 3 months of data, we would estimate 12 months based on the 3 months we were provided. In some cases, the data we retrieve does not have the richness we require (such as credit, debit or international indicators). Where we do not get this data, we use industry averages against your business type to determine your current fees.

As we are now not comparing like for like, your Terminal fees against what you pay today vs the comparisons will be different. However, your comparisons offers will compare against the different set up which you selected.
If you want to change your comparison for example add or change your terminal requirements, then you need to start the process again.

Following your consent, we will pass your details on to the new provider. This will also include some information from your comparison, which means you won't have to provide it yourself to your new provider. Your new provider will then get in contact with you by phone when it is a convenient time to call and complete your application.
Your new provider will take you through what you need to do with your current provider. Please be aware you may need to pay a fee to exit a current contract you are in. This is your responsibility, however some new providers will help you with this cost.
Your comparison offers are based on the transactions your business did in the last 12 months, and we can’t guarantee you will do those exact same transactions (types, amounts) again this coming year. Our service is to provide a transparent indication where you are most likely to get the best deal based on your previous usage
No, we don't publish the actual fees of our providers online. The pricing is complex and covers a wide range of transaction types and risk profiles. Your actual fees will be provided to you in your new provider contract.
