      Hi Richard,

      Unfortunately, we have not reviewed Beyond, so we can’t confidently give an assessment one way or the other.

        It looks like this page needs to be updated since prices changed April 1, 2015 but great info! I just switched card processors to North American Bancard… 2 months statements now. I noticed this odd $17 charge for Fixed Acquirer Network fee so I called and they said it was directly from Visa (not in first statement.) My questions now are; has there been any other changes other than the new fee schedule? Also you say this fee is billed quarterly… and my bill is for the month of August so not exactly near the end of a quarter? Another questions should also be; does Visa bill just one account, if you have multiples under the same tax ID or lump it all into one. I have 2 account that I will be canceling with BofA (terminal & one for eCommerce), Paypal account that accepts Visa and my new account. Any info would be great if you have any insight to give. I’m just trying to make sure my credit card company is on the level about this fee. Also some added bit of info that may be helpful; I do most transactions manually into a terminal or through website, and some of my products are furniture. Thanks
