A detailed break down of how you earn with Buy Me a Coffee

Updated over a week ago

At Buy Me a Coffee, we are committed to supporting creators like you. That's why signing up, creating your page, and accessing all our features are completely free of charge. Unlike other platforms, there are no monthly fees associated with using our features.

We ensure that every user can utilize all the features we offer. Instead, we only apply a 5% transaction fee, which means you get to keep 95% of your earnings while we can also benefit from your work. We only make money when you do.

To learn more about our transparent and fair fee structure, we encourage you to read the article.

Stripe charges

To ensure secure and efficient transactions from your supporters, we have partnered with Stripe, a trusted payment provider. Along with our 5% transaction fee, there may be standard payment processing fees (2.9% + 30 cents) imposed by our payment providers. These fees may vary slightly depending on your location.

We also provide the flexibility for you to choose whether you want to cover the credit card fee from your supporters. If you're interested in learning more about this option and how to implement it, please click here.

Deductions from Stripe explained

What you receive as a creator depends on the number of transactions or support you receive and the corresponding amounts. When Stripe, our payment partner, processes these transactions, the following deductions occur:

Stripe charges a fee based on 0.3 times the number of transactions (n) plus 2.9% of the support amount (x).

The result of this calculation covers the payment processing charge imposed by Stripe.

What Buy Me a Coffee Earns?

Buy Me a Coffee earns only 5% of the creator's earnings, which is deducted separately. We use this money primarily to improve and develop the platform, making it an even better place for creators. Our goal is to provide a user-friendly experience with clear and fair pricing, so you can focus on your creative work and easily connect with your supporters.
