Average Ticket Size Definition

Merchant Account Average Ticket Size Explained:

What is Average Ticket Size? Often referred to as just “Average Ticket” or “Average Sales Ticket” or just “AVT,” this is a dollar figure that most merchant account applications request from the merchant. The “Average Ticket” is the average dollar amount of a final sale, including all items purchased, of a merchant’s typical sales. Processors use the Average Ticket to better understand the merchant’s business and to determine how much risk the merchant poses to the processor. Many merchants find it difficult to determine the size of their average ticket due to widely varying sales amounts, or because the business is new. Often times, processors only need an estimation and not an exact figure.

Hi, I’m Phillip and I’m disgusted by the state of credit card processing in the U.S. and abroad. I believe that the industry has been overrun by people who engage in fraud and deception in order to steal money from hard working business owners. I’ve made it my mission to expose the companies and individuals who engage in predatory marketing, pricing, and contracts, or just provide terrible service. Along with uncovering the bad guys, I’ve also discovered the good guys who do stand out from the status quo. CPO is a website where you will find ratings and reviews of these companies along with advice on how to save money and which service providers consider. Together we can move the industry in a positive direction. If you would like to help support my work, please checkout “Fee Sweep” my eGuide to getting the lowest possible fees when accepting card payments. If you haven’t heard of “interchange” this advice will save you hundreds, even thousands, in processing fees.
