Taxes and fees

Taxes and fees applied when you're selling your flipbooks.

Flipsnack does not retain any fees for selling transactions. However, our payment processor partner will apply a small fee for each transaction.

All the fees presented below will be retained from each successful transaction recorded by the publisher on our platform.

Note: Keep in mind that if you want to sell magazines, books, or courses through Flipsnack, you will have to pay a fee of $100/month in addition to your subscription, to unlock this add-on.

For every successful card charge, Stripe will retain a flat fee varying between 20-30 cents + a percentage of 2.9% from the finalized transaction.

You can accept international cards for an additional 1% of the value of the purchase.
