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.

My Qualifications

I'm a former credit card processing sales director who left the industry to start my own a small business. From the time that I starting working in the merchant services industry to when I left to write about it, I've been on the pulse of payments for nearly 15 years. It didn't seem fair to keep this insider knowledge to myself, so decided to build this website to help you research which providers to use and how to save money on rates and fees. I've reviewed hundreds of companies, read thousands of user reviews, and learned the pricing tricks of every provider. If you have questions about credit card processing, you can find the answers here. Simply scroll to the top of the page to find the search bar. You can also message me if you need any guidance.
