Visa FANF Fee

FANF is a Visa variable fee based on a number of factors, including how you run your business, processing method, sales volume, Merchant Category Code (MCC) and the number of sales locations. When reconciling your statement, keep in mind that Visa FANF is billed in the month after it is incurred.

Card Present FANF Rates

For card-present businesses, the amount assessed for FANF is determined primarily on the number of locations a business has. If you take card-present swiped payments, the FANF assessed will depend on the number of locations you have and if your MCC is designated as high volume. FANF applies to each location and the more locations you have, the more FANF goes up.  See the FANF High Volume MCCs table below for a list of MCCs that are considered high volume by Visa.

Note: If you have monthly gross totals sales volume for all your locations under $199.99, FANF is not assessed for that month. If all your locations have a monthly gross totals sales volume between $200 – $1,249.99, FANF is 0.15% of the gross total sales volume instead of a fixed dollar amount from the table below.

Take both card-present and card-not-present transactions?

For businesses that have both card-present and card-not-present transactions, both types of FANF apply. The card-not-present fees will still be assessed by volume, but only the card-not-present transactions will be used to determine that volume. While card-present transactions will be assessed by the number of locations/high volume MCC.

For example:

  • You have one location that is not a high volume MC. 
  • Your gross monthly total sales volume for that location is $100,000. 
  • $10,000 of that total monthly volume is card-not-present transactions.

You will be assessed the card-not-present FANF rate for $10,000 of volume. You will also be assessed the card-present per location FANF fee for your one location.

For your card-not-present volume, you could anticipate a $15 FANF fee for that month. For your card-present volume, you could anticipate a $2.00 FANF fee for the single location.  Your total FANF fee on your statement would be $17.00 for this month of processing.
