Stripe Fees

Topup payments incur a small transaction fee levied by Stripe
We have partnered with Stripe to facilitate payment processing.  Stripe is a payment platform that allows consumers to make payments online using all credit and debit cards.

Stripe charges a transaction fee for each successful payment, which varies depending on the currency, payment method, and country of origin of the cardholder. The transaction fee consists of a fixed fee and a percentage of the payment amount.  In the UK, Stripe charges 1.5% + 20p for most credit and debit card payments. Customers can also incur additional fees for disputes, refunds, or failed payments.  Customers can view their transaction fees and payouts on the Landlord Gateway.

Recovering costs with a daily standing charge

When using secondary meters, the landlord takes on the role of an energy reseller. As such, they are required to strictly follow the Ofgem guidelines concerning the resale of energy.

The expenses associated with providing meter services can be reclaimed through a daily standing charge. For instance, if the annual cost of these services amounts to £56.00, it can be recuperated at a rate of 15.34 p/day through the standing charge.

Landlords are not billed for meter subscriptions until they decide to activate a meter. This activation is initiated before the actual meter installation. By doing so, we ensure that top-ups can be made immediately once the meters are installed.
