Fees & Pricing

On Indiegogo, it is free to create an account, to create a campaign, and to contribute to a campaign. Indiegogo only charges a fee for funds that are raised by a campaign.

Types of Fees

If you successfully raise money on Indiegogo, you may encounter the following types of fees:

  1. Indiegogo fee: Indiegogo's platform fee, which depends on whether or not you meet your goal
  2. Third party fees for payment processors (such as PayPal or credit card processor)
  3. International wire fee: A one-time international wire (for campaign owners only) and/or currency exchange fees

Please note: 

  • All fees are applied to the amount of funds raised
  • All PayPal fees are approximate. The exact amount depends on your country and the amount of funds raised. For more information on PayPal fees, please visit PayPal Fees. International or cross-border transactions may be charged additional fees by PayPal for currency exchange, e.g. Transaction Fees for Cross-Border Payments. For a complete breakdown of PayPal's payment processing fees based on your account type and region, we recommend reaching out to PayPal Support directly.
  • Indiegogo offers two options for funding your campaign: Fixed Funding or Flexible Funding. You will select your funding type when you set up your campaign. You can only edit this while your campaign is still in Draft mode. Fixed Funding is great for campaigns that can only continue if they raise a certain amount of money. Flexible Funding is great for campaigns that will benefit from any amount of funding. Each project is different, so choose the funding type that is best for your campaign.

Learn More about campaigns raising funds on behalf of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution in the United States. Special fees may apply for campaigns that are fiscally sponsored by one of our Partner organizations. Different fee structures may apply if your campaign is connected to a Partner page. Some of our partnerships, such as Fractured Atlas or San Francisco Film Society offer fiscal sponsorship, and charge a single flat fee to use both services.
