What are the fees involved?
We are gradually phasing in Crowdfunder Payments to all projects. You'll see which version of payments you are on in the Financials tab of your project.
Stripe – Stripe charges 1.4% plus 20p per pledge for any European cards and 2.9% plus 20p per pledge for any non-European cards - charged when pledge payments arrive in your Stripe account.
Crowdfunder Payments – 1.67% plus VAT (VAT is 20% on the fees, so the overall fee is 2%). Both our fee and this transaction fee will be shown to you in an invoice. So if you are VAT registered you can claim this money back.
How long does it take for Stripe to process funds?
For 'All or nothing' projects, if you hit your target by your close date Stripe will deposit your project funds into your linked bank account within seven working days.
For 'Keep what you raise' projects, Stripe will deposit your project funds into your linked bank account within seven working days of your project close date.
