About Transaction Fees
All credit card transactions go through a "processor" like a banks, financial service institutions, and in our case PayPal.
A "transaction fee" is subtracted from the total amount paid each time you use a credit card.
FYI: Wire transfers, cashiers checks, money orders, certified bank checks, all have fees charged up-front so, you see it.
Paypal transaction fees vary depending upon your credit card type (i.e. Visa, MasterCard, Discover, etc.), country of origin, and card issuer.
Standard PayPal transaction fees are normally 2.9% to 3.9% + $0.30 of the payment amount.
Depending upon the credit card, bank, and country, fees can be as high as 7.9% or more for risky countries, unsecured banks, cards, etc. as determined by PayPal.
We do not know the actual fee until, your card is processed by PayPal and your actual fee may be less because, we get a discount based upon our monthly volume. Consequently, we do not include these fees in any or our prices of your contract totals.
Transaction fees will be in your "Final Service Invoice" to collect credit card transaction fees and for additional purchases or fees generated on event day (if any).
For payment of the "Final Service Invoice" We'll pay the transaction fees generated. This will zero your account, no more transaction fee payments from you will be due.
FYI: If you want to avoid transaction fees and we have allowed it, pay in cash on wedding day! This payment is usually the highest and will generate the highest fees. Don't complain later, we're telling you now.
FYI: If you have received your Final Service Invoice and you're wondering or thinking that you have paid these fees, the answer is "no", you have not.
