💳 Pay by Card: Inline vs Modal Flow
Pay by Card now supports two types of payment flows, the modal flow where customers are prompted to securely input and processing their cards via a pop up window, and an inline flow where customers can now do so directly on the checkout page.
In both of these payment flows, the card collection fields are hosted in iframes so there won’t be any additional PCI scope added to your site for selecting either payment flow!

🧮 Pay by Card Fee information
Through our selected partner, Rvvup Pay by Card combines processing fees into a single blended rate. Fees will be subtracted from the funds received, meaning your payouts will be made with processing fees already deducted. This billing approach simplifies the fee structure, as you won't receive separate bills for the card fees.
Regional Fee information
Pay by Card payment fees, unless agreed otherwise, are based on the region of the transaction:
- Domestic Consumer Card Transaction (UK Issued Card): 1.2% + £0.20
- Non-consumer Card Domestic Transaction (Premium & Commercial UK Issued Cards): Domestic rate + 0.7%
- EU Transactions (Cards issued within the EEA Region): Domestic rate + 1.2%
- International Payments (Cards issued outside the EEA or UK) : Domestic rate + 2.05%
- Refund fees (in all regions): £0.50
Let’s say you get a payment from your customer for £13.00 (with the standard 1.2% percentage fee plus the £0.20 fee).
Transaction Amount: £13.00
£0.15 (1.2% of £13)
+£0.20 (base fee)
£0.35 fee total
Net Total: £12.65
In this case, Net means the transaction amount is disbursed to your bank account minus the fee total.
Once we’ve completed your onboarding for Rvvup’s Pay by Card solution, you’ll be ready to take credit and debit card payments immediately. If you previously processed cards through another provider, here is how to access and disable payment methods by plugin:
