In this post, we’ll talk about payment processing fees: what they are, who charges them, and why they might change in the future. These fees are not set by Artisans Cooperative, and are in addition to the Artisans Cooperative sales commission. We’ll also provide a simple calculator that helps artisans price their goods to cover the cost of fees.
