Mobile Payment App Vs Card Reader

Using the Charge For Stripe app, oh my goodness it’s been such a game changer for my little business in NZ. I did my first transaction at the local craft market and it was such a breeze. It’s so user friendly and I felt confident using it, especially for the fact I’m not your most techno savvy person. Also I thought it was pretty damn cool receiving an email from the programmer. Here’s hoping for more sales and transactions 😁 ” – Google Play user 

Can I accept credit cards AND debit cards?

Of course! The awesome Charge App allows you to take both credit and debit card payments.

What fees are payable to use the Charge App?

Often, there’s multiple fees to pay to a merchant and to the payment app, but with Charge there’s only two:
1) The Stripe merchant fee ( (this is completely unavoidable regardless of which payment app you use)
2) The mobile app’s fee… and with the Charge App, it’s just 1% of the sale amount.

To Use The Charge App:
Setup fee:  $0
Monthly fees:  $0
Minimum turnover requirements: None
Subscription fees:  Not applicable
Stripe’s Merchant fee: Varies by country – learn more at
Charge App Transaction fee: 1% of the sale amount

Here’s an example:
Stripe’s merchant fees in Australia are currently 1.75% + $0.30 for domestic cards.
So for an AUD$100 transaction, here is what the fees would look like:

Sale amount: $100
Stripe fees: $1.75 + $0.30 = $2.05
Charge app fees: $1 (1% of the sale amount)
Total fees: $3.05

That’s it, simple and affordable!
