What are the transaction fees for Stripe?

 
When processing online payments through Stripe, including BACS Direct Debit, PAD and SEPA Direct Debit, there is a transaction fee included. Depending on where you're located and whether the transaction is domestic (same country) or international (different country), different rates apply. The transaction fee is taken out of each payment that is processed before being deposited into your account.
 
Charging the credit card fee / transaction fee back to your clients is against some countries' and state laws (also known as a convenience fee, service fee or surcharge).
