Why is there a processing fee for Credit Card payments?

Rather than increasing our registration fees across the board to protect against this expense, we chose to keep our registration fees as is and apply the additional fee for those that want to make use of their credit card to make payment. It merely represents the cost from Stripe or Square (the two payment gateways we use) to make the transaction.

For more information, please visit either Stripe's pricing on their website at https://stripe.com/ca/pricing or Square's pricing at https://squareup.com/ca/reader.

We are always happy to accept payment by cheque, direct deposit, or e-transfer. There is no fee for these transactions.
