Membership Fee

Using our site is FREE for users seeking a coach, mentor or speaker

Monthly Membership $9.97 per month (First month is FREE, so you can trial our services risk-free.)

Annual Membership $97 per year (First month is FREE, so you can trial our services risk-free)


Currency

All monetary amounts on this site are expressed in US Dollars. Unfortunately we cannot embed multiple currencies at this point.

Commission 

Viveka Pty Ltd receives a commission from coaches, mentors and speakers for every successful transaction. The commission is calculated at 10% of the price of your services. Commission will be automatically deducted once a payment for your services is made. 

Stripe and PayPal Payment Processing Fees

Viveka offers two payment gateway services, Stripe and PayPal. Both Stripe and PayPal charge a fee for each transaction on Viveka. 

PayPal payment processing fees are deducted directly from the User's account after a successful sale of your services. Fees depend on three things: the country of the seller, the country of the buyer, and the seller's monthly sales volume. The fee is a combination of a percentage of the total transaction price and a fixed fee. The size of the fee is between 2% and 5%.

Stripe payment processing fees are forwarded to Viveka. Please read the transaction fee variation for Stripe payments below.

Transaction Fees

Viveka transaction fees are a combination of commission and payment processing fees. Transaction fees vary depending on the payment gateway service you use. 
PayPal bills you directly, so Viveka does not include a payment gateway fee in the transaction fee. The overall transaction fee using PayPal is therefore Viveka's 10% commission. 
Stripe charges Viveka for all payment gateway fees, we therefore include a 3% payment gateway service fee to the transaction fee. The overall transaction fee using Stripe is therefore 13% (10% commission + 3% payment gateway service fee).
