Fees

You only pay per transaction, no setup or monthly fees

Every time you accept a payment, we charge an all-in fee for each successfully completed transaction. Because we charge per transaction, you only ever pay for what you use. There are no setup, monthly or hidden fees; you don’t even need a merchant bank account to get paid. Enable any of our features at no additional cost.

Talk to us! Our fees are negotiable.

We care about your business, so chat to our sales team about reducing your rates. We offer lower fees based on your monthly transaction volumes.
