Fees for starters

There are fees if your project is successfully funded and finished and you get the collected money paid out.

  • Voluntary commission for Startnext: You determine the amount and show us your appreciation for our work. On average we get 3% from project starters.
  • Transaction fees: As long as money is involved, we need payment service providers and banks. They want to be paid for their services. Transaction fees are calculated at 4%
  • Invoice: You will receive an invoice from us after your funding amount has been paid out. You can find the invoice in your project interface in the Supporters section of the funding statistics.
  • Start level: Startnext projects are considered successful when they have reached the start level. Currently, the minimum amount is 100€ or you can also set a higher individual amount for the start level. The fees will be charged when you have reached at least the start level.
Your contribution ensures our independence and enables us to run the Startnext platform - today and in the future.
