Blackbaud Merchant and Payment Services
Gateway Interconnect Fees shall apply to Blackbaud customers who process transactions through one of our gateway interconnect options. In addition to the fees, clients will be responsible for negotiating their own contract and rates for the supported payment gateway and processor. These Interconnect Fees are necessary so that Blackbaud can continue to maintain PCI compliance for its software and services and connections to third-party products, like those highlighted below.
