impact.com uses Payment Processing Volume (PPV) as a metric to measure the number of payments that we process for your program. When your processed volume exceeds your purchased PPV tier, we may assess Incremental Volume Fees (or Overage Fees).
impact.com keeps a running tally of the actual PPV we process for your program(s) each month.
At the end of the month, impact.com compares your actual PPV to your purchased PPV tier.
If the actual PPV for your program(s) exceeds your allotted PPV, we’ll calculate an Incremental Growth Fee.
impact.com uses the following primary factors when calculating an incremental growth fee:
Your actual PPV value for an applicable period
Purchased PPV for an applicable period
Percentage to be applied to PPV that exceeds the Purchased PPV volume
Incremental Growth Fee
For a standard monthly payment processing volume, Incremental Growth Fees are calculated as follows: 15.4% of the additional Monthly Payment Processing Volume (e.g., additional Payment Processing incremental volume of
$10,000 x 0.154 = $1,540).
Let’s say you have a standard tier of Monthly Payment Processing Volume of $17,500. Within a given month, we tally up that we’ve processed $20,000 worth of payments for your account.
The incremental growth fee is calculated as such
($20,000 - $17,500) 15.4% = $385.
This amount will be added as an additional line item on the next invoice.
