What is the fee breakdown?

Free Professional Upgrade

Any ticketed event or events collecting payments receive a free upgrade to RSVPify Professional, inclusive of all of our premium features (valued at $409/month). 

What are RSVPify Service Fees?

RSVPify charges an industry-leading low 1.95% + $.90 USD per ticket or person.

These fees help power our platform and offer you top-notch customer support.

Are there credit card processing fees?

Any time you accept credit payments through any payment processor (online or off), credit card fees will apply. These fees are charged by the payment processor and credit card companies and issuers. These fees are unfortunately unavoidable in the world of online payments.

RSVPify is partnered with one of the world's largest payment processors called Stripe. Stripe charges 2.9% + $.30 USD/transaction. Rates may vary by country.

Can I pass service and credit card fees along to my attendees?

You can choose to pass part of these fees or all fees along to your guests, or choose to set ticket prices at a cost that would effectively include or help subsidize these fees.

When do I receive my funds?

With RSVPify + Stripe, transfers of received funds 🏦are automatically sent directly to your bank account (every business day in most cases).

Most online ticketing providers withhold your funds until after your event.

Note: If You're Planning to Accept Offline Payments

Please note that if you expect that 20% or more of your guests will be paying offline (e.g., via check, direct donation to your website, cash, making a pledge, etc.) or comped (e.g., free via coupon), you will need to add a subscription to your account. To pick the right plan for this scenario, first estimate the number of offline or free registrations. Then, align that number with the registration caps listed for each plan. For example, if you estimate there are under 150 registrants with offline payments or comped registrations, select the Starter Plan (max of 150 registrations).
