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?

Yes… the clever Charge App allows you to accept both credit and debit card payments on-the-spot.

What fees are payable to use the Charge App?

Usually you’d pay multiple fees to a merchant and to the payment app…but with Charge there’s only two:
1) The 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!

With The Charge App On Your Phone…

…You can take credit and debit card payments even if you’re not a tech wiz
