The value of deposits for bank partners

I currently have one bank partner and I am working on a few more, but I am having a hard time finding statistics in relation to a credit card processing account and how much of the merchants deposits will be moved if the merchant account is moved to the bank. Deposit accounts are the bank's lifeblood, and I would like to show them how much more they can get if they get at least a deposit account associated with the merchant account. Also any other banking stats, such as stickiness, processing profitability, etc., for banks would also be helpful.
