For most pricing plans, Funraise's Platform Fee is a component of our overall fee model called, "Donors Cover Fees". Learn more about Donors Cover Fees.

What is the Funraise Platform Fee?

Funraise pricing plans have two main components: the base subscription cost and the Platform Fee. The Platform Fee is applied to all online Transactions: Card, ACH, Apple Pay, PayPal, and Bitcoin payments. Offline Transactions that are created manually or imported do not incur the Platform Fee.

Funraise's Platform Fee is in addition to your payment processor’s fees.

How is the platform fee charged?

There are two ways the Funraise Platform Fee can be charged. This is based on the payment processors you've connected to Funraise.

Monthly

For Transactions processed through any processor other than Stripe, the Funraise Platform Fees incurred over the past month are charged monthly using your payment method on file.


At the time of the Transaction

When a Transaction is processed with Stripe, the Funraise Platform Fee will be deducted from the Transaction in real time. The gross amount and fee will be reflected in platform.

If the Platform Fee is charged at the time of the Transaction, the Transaction data field titled Platform Fee Automatically Collected will have a value of Yes.
