Pricing & Fees

It’s free to sign up, to create a campaign, and to contribute to a campaign. The creator may be an individual, a private group, a for-profit or non-profit organization. When your campaign raises funds, there are two scenarios on which charges are incurred on any given campaign.

Campaign Succeeds

In this scenario, when you reach your goal, you are charged 7% of the total collected fees. The remainder of the funds is wired to a verified bank account of the campaign creator.

Campaign Fails

In this scenario, if you fail to reach your goal but chose not to refund contributions when setting up the campaign, you are charged 8% of the total collected fees. The remainder of the funds are wired to a verified bank account of the campaign creator. Always ensure to set goals that are achievable as this puts trust in the contributors that you fully understand the tasks you are about to undertake once the campaign is complete.

Campaign creators are encouraged to set reasonable goals and promote their campaigns.

Third Party Fees

We incur a 3% surcharge for the mobile money and credit and debit card processing fees by our financial payments processing provider. Additional currency exchange fees may also apply. Contributors can contribute from anywhere in the world to campaigns. Akabbo does not charge any fees, but depending on the currency of the campaign they contribute to, they will bear the exchange rate and any additional exchange charges as determined by their credit card.
