The fixed transaction costs are €0,50 including VAT (€0.41 excluding VAT) per donation.

Some payment methods charge additional variable transaction costs. Here is an overview of the payment methods and the costs:
In order to receive and process donations online, we work together with mollie, one of the largest and most secure payment service providers in Europe. Payments are made via the mollie account of Steunactie.
Adding a bankaccount and pay out
Add your bank account (private or business account) in the Bank Account tab in your dashboard and link it to your fundraiser(s).
Donors pay securely via mollie. All donations - after deduction of platform and transaction fees - go directly to your Steunactie account and are immediately visible in your dashboard. Pay out of your donations takes place once a week on Tuesday. Usually the money arrives in your account the next day. The donations and fees are shown in your dashboard. Fees are automatically deducted from the donations.
Your own mollie account: business bank account holders only
For holders of a business bank account it is also possible to create your own mollie account, or to link an existing mollie account should you already have one. Business users must have a business bank account and a Chamber of Commerce number (the Netherlands) or a Enterprise number (Belgium). All donations - minus platform and transaction costs - will be credited to your business bank account without the intervention of Steunactie. You can determine the payout frequency yourself in your mollie account.
The transaction fees are charged directly by mollie and deviate from the table above. Mollie's rates are per successful transaction and exclusive of VAT. See mollie's rates
Verification process mollie
An application for a new mollie account must go through mollie's verification process. An existing mollie account can be linked immediately without verification.

- Name and address details

- Chamber of Commerce number (Netherlands) or Enterprise number (Belgium)
- business bank account number
