What You Need to Know About Success Fee and Decline Fee Commissions
Success fee and Decline fee are commissions related to the payment processing process. These fees are charged for both successful and unsuccessful payments. Let’s explain these two terms in detail.
What Are Success Fees and Decline Fees
The success fee is a percentage of a successful payment amount for the company’s services that the affiliate (a subcontractor who brings in customers for a share of the sales) receives. In other words, if a customer brought in by the affiliate makes a successful payment through the payment system, the subcontractor receives a percentage of that transaction.
Not all transactions are successful for a variety of reasons:
- client errors (incorrectly entered data, insufficient funds, exceeding limits, etc.);
- inconvenient and complex payment process on the website;
- technical issues (server access problems, banking system failures, network glitches, etc.).
The payment system still incurs costs even for unsuccessful transactions. The Decline fee commission is charged to the affiliate for each unsuccessful payment. Unlike the Success fee, the Decline fee typically has a fixed amount.
Why Do We Need Success Fees and Decline Fees
These fees help regulate the financial relationship between the affiliate and the company. In particular, they incentivize the subcontractor to perform their work effectively. High-quality traffic means a higher percentage of successful payments for the company and, consequently, a higher reward for the affiliate. They also protect the company from financial losses with too many declined transactions.
The correct choice of payment system is crucial for a company as it significantly impacts the ratio of successful and unsuccessful payments. If customers have no difficulty making transactions, the number of declines will be minimal.
