Pricing Comparison

This free Pricing Comparison service is only available to Australian businesses with annual payments volumes less than $20 million. If you operate a business outside of Australia, we can still support you on a consulting basis to source competitive pricing proposals from our Payment Service Provider Panel – please complete the contact form below.

A Pricing Comparison compares your current fees with a range of alternative service providers – Live eftpos, Suncorp, Fiserv, SmartPay and Co-operative Supermarkets Australia (CSA pricing leverages Live eftpos, and is only available to independent supermarkets that take up CSA membership). All pricing comparisons provided using this service incorporate least-cost routing as a standard feature.


Co-operative Supermarkets Australia Limited (CSA) is an incorporated co-operative formed in late 2019 whose members operate independent supermarket, liquor retail and convenience stores. CSA has authorisation to collectively bargain with suppliers of goods and services to the Australian grocery industry.

CSA has negotiated exclusive merchant services pricing with Live Payments that leverages strategic merchant rates that CSA has negotiated directly with the card schemes.
