Aside from their normal processing fees (2.9% + $0.30), Stripe offers a NonProfit pricing structure of 2.2% + $0.30 for non-American Express transactions, and 3.5% for American Express transactions. Stripe will also waive fees on the first $15K of volume, starting when Stripe is able to apply this discount, and ending once you've either exceeded $15K in processing volume or the one year anniversary of applying for the promotion.
