Host Fees

With the implementation of the new Dashboard interface, we are currently in the process of updating our documentation and some pages may be out of date. Thank you for your patience. Please contact our support team if you need any assistance.

You have the option to charge a fee to Collectives who use your services as fiscal host.

Setting the host fee

Go to your Fiscal Host page, click on the gear icon next to your logo and head to Advanced.

Set your host fee to 0% if you do not want to charge a fee to your Collectives. This is the commission charges on donations made to Collectives in your host through the platform. Don't forget to save your changes!

Fees for manual transactions

When you add funds manually, you have the option to charge a custom host fee. You may wish to vary the fee depending on the circumstance, such as an agreement to not charge fees for a certain grant, or an extra charge for manual bank processes.

Accounting for Host fees

Host admins will receive a monthly host report, including an accounting of host fees.

Many hosts opt to add host fees to a Collective, in order to account for income and expenses transparently. To do so, create a Collective under your host, and manually add the fees to it each month.
