How ARTSVP handle fees
At ARTSVP we have a strong focus on providing our client's customers with a simple booking and ticket purchasing experience. In order to provide the simplest flow we do not allow vendors using ARTSVP to pass fees on to the visitor. Instead ARTSVP takes our fees.
As ARTSVP takes our fees (and Stripe's fee) out of the total transaction it can be an option to increase public pricing to cover the fees. This is up to individual vendors.
Example fee breakdown
If you were to sell a single ticket priced at £15 (paid for with European Card), the fee breakdown would be as follows:
Amount paid by customer: £15
Fee taken by ARTSVP (5%): 75p
Fee taken by Stripe (1.4% +20p): 21p +20p = 40p
Total fees taken from transaction: £1.05
Amount received by vendor: £13.95
