Stripe is a payment gateway that allows you to take payments directly from your clients. It’s integrated into WriteUpp so that you can take payments in a seamless manner. Using Stripe with WriteUpp will reduce time-sapping admin, improve your cashflow and reduce your transaction costs. You can find out more about Stripe here.

To take payment (via Stripe) in WriteUpp you will be charged your local Stripe fee + 0.5%. So, for example, if your local Stripe fees are 1.4% + 20p/transaction you will be charged 1.9% + 20p/transaction.

All fees are deducted by Stripe.
