Our platform fee is 5%, but during the pledge process we offer your supporters the chance to cover that fee on your behalf. On average, about two-thirds of supporters opt to cover the platform fee, making the effective platform fee for most creators less than 5% – often close to just 2%!
In addition to our platform fee, Credit Card processing fees are $0.30 + 2.9% of each pledge. On average, the combined fees that creators pay on Seed&Spark are lower compared to other crowdfunding platforms for creative projects, which means filmmakers keep more of what they raise. This makes a big difference for most of our creators.
You can find a full breakdown of your fees in the Payout section of your project dashboard (example below) after your campaign receives the green light and payment has been processed.
