Commission and transaction fees

Only if your project is successfully funded, the following fees are incurred. If the project is not successfully funded, you will not have to pay anything.

  • Voluntary commission for Startnext: You determine the exact amount you’d like to give to Startnext. Your contribution shows your support for our work and our commitment to the cause. On average we get 3% from our project starters.
  • Transaction fees: As long as money is involved, we need banks and payment service providers - and the fees are unfortunately fixed. The payments are entirely processed by our service provider Finlane and are charged with 4%.
You know how it is: Banks, insurance companies, other platforms - fixed fees and charges are everywhere. Startnext works differently: Our operation is entirely financed by support from our community. We believe in a society in which everyone can decide just how much a service is worth to them. 

Denis Bartelt, CEO and founder of Startnext


  • Invoice: The commission and transaction fees are subtracted from your funding sum upon payout and you will receice an invoice from us.
  • Refunding for successful projects: If you can not realize the project, we can offer you in exceptional cases to reverse the transactions from our service provider Finlane. For this service we charge an additional 4% of the funding sum.
