First Payment Merchant Services, Plans, Pricing & Fees
First Payment Merchant Services doesn’t list its prices online. They do state that opening an account is free of charge and you will “be charged a tiny percentage of your transaction for the service. You never pay more than you can afford. There is also a monthly fee for the supply of your actual or virtual machine.” Contact the company directly for information on pricing and fees.
