Is there a way to set a form up to cover the credit card processing fees?

    Many non-profit fundraising platforms are offering the option for the donor to cover the processing fees so that their full donation goes to the non-profit.

    I'm setting up my first form with Stripe (used to use Paypal) so that I can offer recurring membership donations. 

    Is there a way for me to configure the form so that those fees would be covered?

    Thanks,

    Erin

    Yes, this is possible by increasing the pricing in your form to cover the fees. This guide from Stripe should help you how to configure such in your form:

    But note, as per the guide, in some jurisdictions, charging processing fees to your customers is prohibited by law. Please read that as well.
