BitPay is introducing a tiered pricing model to replace our existing fixed pricing structure. For the past few years we’ve seen thousands of new global retailers, etailers and merchants accept cryptocurrency for everyday purchases and high ticket items. BitPay’s new pricing model is designed to aid widespread adoption, allowing our high volume merchants to scale with crypto as it continues to rise as a preferred payment method.
BitPay’s tiered pricing model
Transaction processing fees will range from 1-2% based on a businesses cumulative monthly volume, plus a 25¢ fixed fee per transaction. Merchants accepting crypto payments will still pay less in processing fees than traditional credit card rates. Additionally, crypto payments come with the added benefit of shielding merchants from fraud chargebacks, saving valuable time and money. See details about the new pricing model on BitPay’s Pricing page.

I am a small business, what does this mean for me?
Smaller merchants just getting started with cryptocurrency payments or who don’t process large volumes (<$500,000 per month) will pay a 2% processing fee + 25¢ fixed fee.
