The cost per transaction collected by Followmybid is 5.1% for using the platform and 2.9% + $0.30 collected by Stripe, our payment processor. Please note that the cost per transaction may vary depending on the credit card of the participants and the type of organization that receives the funds raised during the auction.

*With the Tailored launch plan, you will be able to manage the payments outside the Followmybid platform if you are not using the integrated solution of the payment processor Stripe. Each participant who wins an item will receive an invoice automatically. Furthermore, you will receive a detailed list of all the invoices issued to your auction participants. It will then be possible to reconcile these invoices with the payments received.
A payment processor is a service that allows you to manage, make and settle payments and purchases online.
To facilitate the payment management process, Followmybid decided to go with the solutions offered by the payment processor Stripe.
If you use Stripe with Followmybid, this payment processor offers the following solutions:
A provider that offers online payment solutions handles card transactions between a buyer (user or customer) and a vendor (company offering products or services).
The payment processor simultaneously and securely connects to the vendor's account and the payment gateway to exchange transaction information. Once the transaction information is processed and validated, the processor deposits the funds into the seller's or buyer's account, depending on the services or products offered. The processor's role also includes confirming the transaction's success or failure.
