Civil uses Stripe, which securely allows readers to give directly money via Boosts to a newsroom via credit/debit cards. The reader will enter their credit card number and the amount they’d like to donate, and then Stripe will send a confirmation email after the transaction has been completed.
In most cases, Stripe domestic US transaction fees are 2.9% + $0.30 for credit card payments. For other applicable fees and more information, you can visit Stripe’s pricing page for your country. Civil does not collect any fees.
