How am I billed for transaction fees?

Merchant Accounts

All Merchant Account customers will automatically have credit card transaction fees taken from them with the transaction processing.

Some of our legacy accounts offered a 0% fees promotion. If you are on this promotion, you will receive a quarterly check from GiveSmart Fundraise reimbursing you for the fees removed.

(For Legacy Accounts) Standard  Remittance Checks

The credit card processing fees (CCPF) are deducted from your remittance check at the rate agreed upon in your GiveSmart Fundraise contract. Remittance checks are mailed to non-profit organizations with a brief summary statement which includes the total amount of collected donations for that period, deducted fees, and any refunds or chargebacks deducted.
