Stripe Fees (UK & European Accounts)

When you create your GoFundMe account and indicate that you're in of the following countries, you'll be asked to create an account with Stripe:

 

United Kingdom
Ireland
France
Netherlands
Belgium
Germany
Spain
Luxembourg
Finland
Italy
Austria

 

Stripe's fees are dependent on where the donation is coming from:

As of December 9th, 2015:

If you're located in one of the above countries and your currency is the Euro:

 

1.4% + €0.25 per donation from cards issued within European Economic Area. This is in addition to GoFundMe's 5% fee on all donations. 

 

2.9% + €0.25 per donation from cards issued outside of the European Economic Area. This is in addition to GoFundMe's 5% fee on all donations. 

 

If you're located in the UK and you're currency is GBP:

 

1.4% + £0.20 per donation from cards issued within European Economic Area. This is in addition to GoFundMe's 5% fee on all donations. 

 

2.9% + £0.20 per donation from cards issued outside of the European Economic Area. This is in addition to GoFundMe's 5% fee on all donations. 

 

If you don't receive any donations, then you won't pay anything at all. Since our fee is deducted from each donation in real-time, you'll never need to worry about getting billed or owing us any money. 

 

Your donors are never charged fees and since GoFundMe is the best fundraising solution available, all those extra donations you collect should more than make up for fees.
