The Plastiq Fee for most payments is 2.5%. For payments to recipients within Canada, the fee is 2.85%.
Payments may incur additional fees based on the country the card was issued in or method of delivery. Some select Canadian merchants have a lower fee.
Plastiq provides a breakdown of these fees on the payment review screen prior to submission. All percentage-based fees are calculated based on the principal amount (i.e. the amount you want to pay your recipient.)
This breakdown will show the Plastiq and any additional fees incurred. The fee breakdown will also indicate any active promotional discounts or FFDs that are applied to your payment.
Plastiq fees are subject to change without notice. Plastiq fees may be lowered due to promotions or referral credits you have at the time of payment.
U.S. Debit Cards
Please note that the Plastiq fee for Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners, Discover, JCB debit card issued in the US is 1%. This excludes pre-paid cards, gift cards, online-only banks and all international debit cards.
Scheduled payments lock in the Plastiq fee you received at the time of submission.
Editing a scheduled payment will initiate a recalculation of the Plastiq fee. For example, if you schedule a payment during a promotion period and you edit it later, you will lose the promotional rate.
