If you're invited to and join a Pay By Group that was created directly from our website, you'll be charged 2.9% of your contribution in addition to the base contribution amount to cover credit card processing.
You can tell that your Pay By Group was created this way if you only see the Pay By Group logo above the title at the top of the page, like this:
Note that the above fee structure only applies to Pay By Groups where the organizer created the group independent of our merchant-integrated Pay By Group Checkout. If you see an additional business name or logo above the title at the top of the page, like this:
Then the Pay By Group was created on a third-party website using Pay By Group Checkout, our integrated checkout option, for that merchant's product and/or service.
The fee structures for organizers and invitees participating in these Pay By Groups will vary from merchant to merchant, starting at $0 and ranging upward from there. The specific fee structure for a given merchant will always be shown to the organizer when the Pay By Group Checkout option is selected on the merchant's website, and to invitees when they sign up for the group.
