It's also the simplest model to understand because in most cases, you pay a single percentage rate and a per-transaction fee for every transaction, and the rate is the same no matter what type of card it is, although you may pay a slightly higher rate for transactions you manually key in.
Flat-rate pricing initially looks more expensive because the rates are higher than the starter rates that many companies advertise.
The tiers are sometimes referred to as buckets, and this pricing model may also be called "bucket pricing." It may be also referred to as "bundled pricing" because of the way the costs are bundled together to create a simplified price.

If battery is present, it will show up, if not - the script will tell you so.Others, such as Flint, charge different rates for debit and credit cards, which can be a plus if your customers prefer paying with debit cards.A few companies' pricing models are almost flat-rate/tiered hybrids; they charge a higher rate for rewards cards but are otherwise similar to flat-rate pricing.For this reason, the costs and fees of accepting credit cards are likely the first factors you evaluate when looking for a mobile credit card processor.
Two factors – processing costs and fees – comprise the amount you can expect to pay.
Now, go to your .bashrc file and add $(batpower) to your prompt.
Here's mine promt: In my Ubuntu 12.04 netbook (after changing to BAT0), I don't seem to get a POWER_SUPPLY_CAPACITY line.
Industry experts criticize tiered pricing because it's less transparent than interchange-plus pricing and more complex than flat-rate pricing.
Tiered pricing is intended to be a simplified pricing model that combines the processor's markup with the actual processing costs, called the interchange rate and the card brand fee, and then sorts them into tiers.
In that case, you can add this line right before the last line: doesn't work, because I guess 11.10 doesn't support your laptop's ACPI functions as well [battery, etc]. /bin/bash cd /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0; max=$(grep 'design capacity:' info|awk '') current=$(grep 'remaining capacity:' state|awk '') percent=$(expr $current"00" / $max ) echo -e "Current capacity: \t$current" echo -e "Max capacity: \t$max" echo -e "Percent: \t\t$percent" #!
