What is the minimum amount I can charge with Stripe?

Businesses in the United States

If your business is based in the United States and only processes payments in US dollars, then it’s pretty straightforward. In order to make sure each charge covers the necessary fees and you don’t end up losing money on the transaction, we require a minimum of $0.50 for each charge.

If your business is based in the United States and you process payments in other currencies, then the minimum will be the equivalent of $0.50 after the charge is converted to US dollars.

But what if my business isn’t based in the United States?

For businesses that are not based in the United States, the minimum charge depends on the currency for your bank account.

Charges that are made in the same currency as your bank account will have the minimum shown in the list below. Charges that are made in other currencies will have the equivalent minimum after the charge is converted to your bank account’s currency.

Currency Minimum Charge
USD: United States Dollar $0.50
CAD: Canadian Dollar $0.50
GBP: British Pound £0.30
EUR: Euro €0.50
DKK: Danish Krone 2.50-kr.
NOK: Norwegian Krone 3.00-kr.
SEK: Swedish Krona 3.00-kr.
CHF: Swiss Franc 0.50 Fr
AUD: Australian Dollar $0.50
JPY: Japanese Yen ¥50
MXN: Mexican Peso $10
SGD: Singapore Dollar $0.50
HKD: Hong Kong Dollar $4.00

But I have multiple bank accounts for multiple currencies. What happens then?

Charges made with any of your banks' currencies will have those currencies' minimums. Charges that are not in any of those currencies will have the equivalent minimum after the charge is converted to your default bank account’s currency.

For example, if you have three bank accounts—a default account in British Pounds, one in Euros, and another in United States Dollars—charges made in those three currencies would have each currency’s minimums (£0.30 GBP, €0.50 EUR, and $0.50 USD respectively). Any charges that are made in other currencies—such as Swiss Francs, Danish Krones, or Canadian Dollars—would be converted to British Pounds and then have a minimum of £0.30 GBP.
