New Headline Rate
To carry on our long-standing relationship, Bira and Global Payments are delighted to renew their partnership for another 3 years, until April 2023. They are here to support you and so have agreed to reduce your current credit card headline rate from 1st May.
This new deal will see every customer using Bira and Global Payments receiving a reduction in their current credit card headline rate, providing preferential payment processing rates to get you through the tough economic climate.
If you are trading at the moment the rates will benefit you immediately and if you’re currently closed, the new rate will be there for when you reopen.
No PCI Fees
We will also waive the PCI fees applicable to using the Security Metrics programme for PCI compliant merchants. These are the fees that currently appear on your statement as “GF Fee” within the Other Fees section.
