When a project is successfully funded, in exchange for Budfunding’s platform and services, 5% is collected from the total funds raised.  There is a third-party payment fee (paypal) of 3% plus a 30-cent service charge for each credit card transaction. Lastly, a payment of $25 CAD will be required for all international wire transfers sent by campaign owners to international bank accounts (This fee is exclusive to campaign owners).
