The Rundown

How do fees work on Peter's Square?

It costs nothing to join or setup your shop in Peter’s Square.  No fees to list products either.

Every time you make a sale, 3% of the item’s price plus 5¢ is kept by Peter’s Square; this is the commission fee.  In addition to this fee, you will be charged a transaction fee by the company that processes the customer’s payment (Stripe or PayPal).  Presently, both of those companies charge 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction (might vary outside of the U.S.).

Two important details: Peter’s Square doesn’t charge a commission fee on your shipping fees.  And the 5¢ is only charged once per line-item.  All in all, Peter’s Square offers lower fees than the other guys.

How do I get paid?

PayPal: When you setup your shop, you’ll have the option of supplying a PayPal account email address.  If you supply one, then your customers will be able to pay via PayPal or credit card.  If you don’t give us a PayPal address, then your customers will still be able to pay via credit card.  When customers pay via PayPal, you receive an instant payment to your PayPal account.  Simple.

Credit Card: For instant payments with credit card transactions, we’ve got you covered.  Actually, Stripe has you covered.  In your shop’s payment settings, you will connect with Stripe, our credit card processor.  If you don’t already have a Stripe account, it only takes 90 seconds to sign up, and it’s free.  Once connected, you will receive funds from credit card payments immediately, and Stripe will auto-transfer the funds to your bank account in 2 days.
