I do agree that a better price can be obtained from tendering for the service there are a number of payment service providers and I have used companies such as commidea in the past.

This is very good advice. A lot of business owners simply settle for one of the larger banks and don't shop around for a more affordable payment processor. It is very easy to switch payment processor with only minor changes required.
