We estimate the cover fee by using 2.2% + 30c (nonprofit Stripe rate) + 1.5% (Donorbox platform fee if you receive at least $1,000 in donations for the month), totaling 3.7% + 30c.
Your actual processing fee will vary depending on these factors:
- If you have the NPO discount rate from Stripe or PayPal.
- The type of card you are using. AMEX charges a flat 3.5% (no 30c charge) for U.S. nonprofits.
- The country your Stripe account is registered in. See https://stripe.com/global.
- Whether your organization will reach $1,000 in donations for the month. Donorbox will only enforce the 1.5% platform fee if you receive $1,000.
- If the donor is using a card outside of your Stripe country.
Because Donorbox cannot know your actual processing fee ahead of time, the fee amount in the checkbox is estimated.
