Online payments – the basics

What are online payments?

Let your customer pay by debit or credit card, online from their computer or mobile.

We use Stripe to securely process your customer's card details, and money is transferred to your bank account in 7 business days.

Stripe deducts a fee from each payment you take:

For UK customers

  • 1.9% + 20p for UK and EU cards
  • 3.4% + 20p for non-EU cards

A note on Amex: UK or EU issued American Express cards are charged at the lower, 1.9% (+ 20p) rate. 

For US and Canadian customers

  • 3.4% + 30c

For Australian customers

  • 2.25% + A$0.30 for domestic cards
  • 3.4% + A$0.30 for International cards

  1. Create a free Stripe account (if you don't already have one)
