Our platform fee is 5%, but we offer your supporters the chance to cover that fee on your behalf.
Generally about two thirds of them opt to do so, making the effective platform fee for most campaigns closer to 2%. Credit Card processing fees are $0.30 + 2.9% of the pledge on top of that. On average, the combined fees are 5%, which means filmmakers generally keep 95% of what they raise.
This is lower than any other crowdfunding platform for creative projects, and 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.
