What are micropayments?

Micropayment is designed for merchants who process low-value transactions (typically under $12 in value). Our micropayment rate is 5% (6% for cross border transactions) + $0.05 per transaction.

The micropayments rate is available to all merchants and in all countries as long as you have a Business account. If you sign up for micropayments, you will be charged the micropayments rate on all transactions regardless of transaction amount. For example, with micropayments pricing, it would cost $0.25 to receive a $4.00 payment and it would cost $1.05 to receive a $20 payment.

To sign up for the micropayments, please contact our customer support.
