We offer a few different pricing plans on PayWhirl...
- STARTER - No monthly fees and 3% of processing - Stripe Gateway Only
- PRO - $49/month and 2% of processing - Stripe, Braintree, Authorize.net and Spreedly Vault Gateways*
- PLUS - $149/month and 1% of processing - Stripe, Braintree, Authorize.net, and Spreedly Vault Gateways*
- ULTIMATE - $249/month and 0.5% of processing - Stripe, Braintree, Authorize.net, and Spreedly Vault Gateways*

*The Spreedly Vault is available on all of our plans that include a monthly fee and costs an additional $10/month and 10¢ per transaction. Gateways include: Bambora / Beanstream, Citrus Pay, Cyber Source, Elavon, Heartland Payment Systems, NMI, PayPal Payments Pro, Sagepay, WePay, WorldPay and more.
For example, if you are on PayWhirl PLUS, your PayWhirl processing rate would be 1.00%... If you also live in the United States and are using the Stripe Gateway, their processing rate is 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction on credit cards (ACH available too). This would bring your total processing fees to 3.9% + 30¢ per transaction.
However, if, for example, you live in Australia, your rate would be different. In Australia Stripe's domestic rate is 1.75% + 30¢ per transaction which, when combined with PayWhirl PLUS, would give you a total transaction fee of 2.75% + 30¢ per transaction.
The totals above are for credit or debit card transactions. If you're using ACH (Stripe only) then the rates are cheaper (currently 0.80% for ACH transfers).
Can I change plans?
Yes! You can change between pricing plans at any time. If your business increases you can upgrade to reduce your rate. The next invoice that generates will be at the new rate.
Note: If you are on a monthly paid plan using Braintree or Authorize and downgrade to Starter, you can only use the Stripe gateway. Make sure you have transferred your customers to Stripe beforehand by reaching out to the gateway's customer support. This will help simplify the transition.
When are transaction fees from PayWhirl charged?
If you use the Stripe gateway PayWhirl transaction fees are deducted immediately when the transaction processes. They are not billed with your monthly plan.
If you are using Braintree, Authorize.net, or Spreedly your transaction fees will be added to your monthly bill along with your PayWhirl Plan.
On the Invoice > Payments page you can view the PayWhirl fees for each transaction that is processed by PayWhirl.
