PledgeStar has no upfront costs. After the event, we send an invoice in the amount of 7% of donations received through the website, whether made by credit card or check, up to a maximum of $995. There are no fees for donations received outside of PledgeStar.
The credit card processor deducts 30 cents per transaction plus 2.2% of the transaction amount for Visa, MasterCard and Discover, and 3.5% for American Express. These fees do not apply for donations made by check.
