0% Platform Fee
GoFundMe has a 0% platform fee for personal fundraisers started in US dollars, Canadian dollars, Australian dollars, British pounds, and most major European countries. Note, there is a standard transaction fee to cover credit card processing and the safe transfer of funds.
That’s right, our platform is free. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we don’t charge a platform fee.
Pricing for other countries and currencies can be seen on our pricing page here.
For all fundraisers, industry-standard transaction fees apply and vary depending on the country that the fundraiser was created in. You can see transaction fees and total VAT by country by clicking here.
All transaction fees are deducted from each donation in real-time, so organizers and beneficiaries never have to pay anything.
Legacy Pricing & Fees
Fundraisers created with our previous pricing structure can typically opt in to the 0% platform fee for future donations. Please view this article if you would like to opt in or have questions about your fundraiser.
Payment Processing Timeline
If you received a recent donation that is not showing as available, the funds are likely processing, which can take 1-7 business days (weekends and holidays do not count as business days).
Once the funds become available, we'll automatically schedule a transfer, and you'll receive the money in 2-5 business days.
