When you support a Linktree User by paying for a product or service or contributing financially in some other way, you may be presented with an option to help the Linktree user pay their payment processing fees.
The additional amount is calculated from:
The fee the user will be charged by Linktree, depending on their subscription tier + The fee the user will be charged by their payment platform provider which can be made up of:
The lowest published rate (%) from that payment platform provider + any fixed amount per transaction charged by the payment platform provider
Example for a Free Linktree User using Square (lowest %, no fixed fee):
Payment provider fee (e.g. Square)
Lowest published transaction fee rate per provider
Linktree fee (e.g. Free subscription)*
Linktree transaction fee based on subscription tier see here for more on Linktree fees.
Payment provider fee % + Linktree fee % = Contribution %
Original Transaction Amount
Amount visitor can choose to add to their total
Base transaction amount / (1 - Contribution %) = Optional Contribution amount
Total transaction amount
Base transaction amount + Contribution amount = Total transaction amount
Fees deducted by Square
1.9% x $103.79
Fees deducted by Linktree*

TOTAL fees deducted from the total transaction amount
Fees deducted by Square + Fees deducted by Linktree
