What is Stripe?

Stripe is a payment method and needs to be set up externally before it can be used on the Booth Book system. 

How Much Does Stripe Cost?

Stripe costs you 1.4% plus 20p per transaction In the UK. In the US it's 2.9%+30c. For example on a booking that costs a customer £500, and if they pay a deposit of £100, then x2 payments of £200 each, your business will pay:


£1.60 (for this deposit transaction)

+ £3.00 (for this payment transaction)

+ £3.00 (for this payment transaction)

-----------------------------------------------------

= £7.60 to Stripe for this booking (UK)

Compared to Paypal which costs 3.5% per transaction:

£3.50 (for this deposit transaction)

+ £7.00 (for this payment transaction)

+ £7.00 (for this payment transaction)

-----------------------------------------------------

= £17.50 to Paypal for this booking
