When you support a Linktree User by paying for a product or service or contributing financially in some other way, you may be presented with an option to help the Linktree user pay their payment processing fees.
- The fee the user will be charged by Linktree, depending on their subscription tier + The fee the user will be charged by their payment platform provider which can be made up of:
- The lowest published rate (%) from that payment platform provider + any fixed amount per transaction charged by the payment platform provider
Example for a Free Linktree User using Square (lowest %, no fixed fee):
|Original Transaction Amount||-||-||$100.00|
|Amount visitor can choose to add to their total||Base transaction amount / (1 - Contribution %) = Optional Contribution amount|
$100/(1-3.65%) = $3.79
|Total transaction amount||Base transaction amount + Contribution amount = Total transaction amount||-||$103.79|
|Fees deducted by Square||1.9% x $103.79||1.9%||$1.97|
|Fees deducted by Linktree*||1.75% x $103.79||1.75%||$1.82|
|TOTAL fees deducted from the total transaction amount||Fees deducted by Square + Fees deducted by Linktree||-||$3.79|
|TOTAL amount Linktree user receives after fees applied||Total transaction amount - TOTAL fees deducted from the total transaction amount||-||$100.00|
*To celebrate the launch of Linktree's Commerce Links, the Linktree platform fee is currently waived.
