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 transaction fees are charged with 4%.

Invoice for the fees

The voluntary commission and transaction fees are subtracted from your funding sum upon payout and you will receice an invoice from us. You can download it on your project page via "Supports > Funding Stats".

    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.
