  • SMB Merchant Volume
    • Among SMB merchants (less than $5M in volume) the average sized merchant has gone from $192,000 card volume (debit/credit) in 2015 to $220,000 in 2018.
  • Average Life – Credit Card Processing
  • Account Size
    • B2B merchants are large ($537,000 in annual volume) and growing fast (8.1% year-over-year). This is driven by the opportunity and execution of converting payments typically made via ACH or check to card.
  • eCommerce vs Non-eCommerce Chargebacks
