elopage is your payment provider. You will receive a checkout page for each product with which you can automatically process your payments with the most common payment methods, such as prepayment, PayPal, credit card or SEPA direct debit. We charge transfer and service fees for every sale.
Since we are the all-in-one solution for your online business, you do not need any additional external software for product creation. You can create your online courses, tickets, memberships, etc. directly on elopage and use features such as video streaming, joint ventures, upsells, funnels and much more.
Transfer fees and service fees
We have two contract models. The seller model and the reseller model. You can find all company and price levels with the corresponding transfer and service fees in our >>price matrix.
The Seller Model
When you register, you are by default the seller in your own name and receive conditions of a maximum of 3.9% plus EUR 0.25 per incoming payment from us. If you use other payment providers such as PayPal or Stripe, their payment fees will still apply. The fee depends on the amount of payment received, so you pay less for high-priced products.
For payments between EUR 500.01 and EUR 1,500, for example, you only pay 3.5%, between EUR 10,000.01 and EUR 25,000 even only 1.9%. For currencies other than EUR 2% is added.
Selling in the reseller model
If you do not want to act as a seller in your own name, we also offer the reseller model , in which you are charged a maximum of 7.5% plus EUR 0.50 (including PayPal transaction fees) per payment. For currencies other than EUR, the fee is 2% higher.
For example, for payments between EUR 500.01 and EUR 1,500, you pay just 6.5%; between EUR 10,000.01 and EUR 25,000 you pay just 3.9%.
When selling in the reseller model, there is no accounting or tax calculation for the individual transfers. Regardless of the actual transfers, you will comfortably receive one or two cash-outs per month from elopage (depending on the monthly turnover).
Decide on a contract model
Decide promptly whether you want to sell in your own name or apply for the reseller model.
If you sell in your own name, you should
- have your deposit account legitimized with elopage PLUS at an early stage, as you can only use the payment methods after your account has been legitimized. This can take up to 48 hours, provided that all uploaded records meet the requirements. Here you can find more information on legitimizing with >>elopage PLUS.
- Provide your payout account and provide proof of IBAN and account holder. >>elopage PLUS.
If you want to sell in the reseller model, we will check your business and your product before you can offer it. Therefore, you first submit your products to us for approval. You can find more information here in the support article >>Step 1: Request conversion of the account to the reseller model.
You decide. There are no differences in the importance of your account. It is also possible to change from selling in your own name to >>selling in the reseller model later.
As a so-called VAT-exempt small business owner, you should sell in your own name, as your customers are billed for VAT in the reseller model because the reseller is a German, taxable company.
