Stripe - Pricing for Transaction Processing
By connecting your Stripe account to MonkeyPod, you can unlock the ability for MonkeyPod to process certain transactions for you, and in some cases to even record them automatically in your books. Most importantly, this includes the ability to create online fundraising pages with a wide range of donation options. You'll also be able to receive credit card payments for invoices and pledges.
Both Stripe and MonkeyPod charge small fees for processing these credit card transactions. Stripe's base pricing is 2.9% plus $0.30/transaction. MonkeyPod charges an additional 1% of each transaction it processes.
MonkeyPod fees only apply to transactions that MonkeyPod processes. If you use your Stripe account to process transactions outside of MonkeyPod, then you will only be responsible for Stripe's fees on those transactions.
Note: When MonkeyPod auto-records a transaction in your books, the transaction processing fees are included in the accounting record, so you'll always know exactly how much you're spending.
