If you're talking about exchanging IP traffic with a payment processor, I 
don't think there is an exchange point dedicated to them.  They would 
either buy transit from a provider, or have a presence at one or more 
public exchange points.  If you want to use a specific payment processor, 
many of the ones I've seen have a way to move payment info securely over 
the public Internet, or if you have a large enough transaction volume (or 
your business policies require it), a circuit directly to the processor's 
network might be an option.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by an "ATM interexchange network".
