Passing on your payment processing fees

Bopple partners with Stripe to offer heavily discounted payment processing fees, which you can optionally add to customer orders.

Discounted Stripe fees with Bopple

By using Bopple, you benefit from the overall payments volume of the whole Bopple platform and our partnership with Stripe. This means your payment processing costs are heavily discounted by default, regardless of the payments volume at your business. 

  % fee per transaction Fixed fee per transaction Card processing cost on a $20 order

Stripe Standard (Domestic Cards) 1.75% $0.30 $0.65
Stripe Standard (International Cards) 2.9% $0.30 $0.88

Whether you choose to cover payment processing fees yourself or pass them on to customers, they are significantly lower with Bopple when compared to Stripe's standard rates, which is what you'll pay with a lot of other, similar ordering platforms.

Passing your payment fees onto customers

It's simple to set up an order fee to pass payment processing costs along to your customers. While this is becoming common, it's still entirely up to you as to whether or not you pass fees on to your customers.
