- AN URGENT REMINDER - IndieCommerce Credit Card Processor Migration Deadline October 22 - If your IndieCommerce site is still on the shared ABA credit card merchant account, the deadline to move to your own credit card processor is October 22nd.

Stores that have not switched over to their own credit card merchant account by October 22, 2020 will once again be charged the 4.5% service fee that was suspended on July 31st. This fee will be charged to cover ABA’s additional costs for as long as your site continues to use the ABA shared account. In addition to the 4.5% service fee, your store will also be charged the new 1% commission.

You can find answers to some of your questions here and instructions for setting up your own account here. You can also email with any questions or if you need recommendations for a credit card processor. We are happy to guide you through this process.
