Will I be paid a transaction fee for my Paid Transfers?
We’ve partnered with Stripe to bring you this feature. Stripe charges a transaction fee of 2.9% + 30¢ for each transaction you make on your Paid Transfers, up to a maximum of $2 USD. This will be taken automatically as payments are sent to you and you will be able to review all charges from the dashboard under your Stripe account. For more information about charges please see here.
Why am I having issues connecting to Stripe?
To enable this feature under your WeTransfer account, you must successfully connect to your Stripe business account. To connect your account, you must login to Stripe your existing Stripe account or complete account registration if you don’t have an existing Stripe account. If you have not managed to connect Stripe to your WeTransfer account then you’ll that its status will remain as ‘pending’ until this integration has been completed.
To resolve this issue, please return to Stripe and login to your account or complete your account registration. After doing so, you should see that your Stripe account is not connected. Please be sure to refresh your WeTransfer accounts page.
