What are the costs?
The GAA app is free to download. There is no subscription or annual cost for using the functionality. Payments received online do incur a charge from the payment provider as is the case for any online payment using a debit or credit card. The charge is calculated as a percentage of the overall payment with a small fixed cost. The existing registration fees paid via your county board remain the same.
What is the online payment charge?
Each transaction that is completed with a standard Irish or UK debit or credit card incurs an online payment charge of 1.35% plus a fixed charge of €0.25 / £0.20.
Example: If a membership fee of €50 is paid by the member via the GAA app, the club will receive €49.08 into their Stripe account following the deduction of the transaction charge of €0.92 (€50 * 1.35% = €0.675 + €0.25).
Non standard cards, such as commercial credit/debit cards or cards from other jurisdictions may incur higher charges.
When will clubs receive the payment into the bank account?
Clubs are on a weekly payout schedule and will receive a batch transfer into their nominated bank account on a Friday.
The weekly payout will contain any membership fee payments that were received into the clubs ‘Stripe’ account between 00:00:00 on a Tuesday and 23:59:59 on a Monday of the following week.
NOTE: As soon as a payment is captured from the payer, the funds are guaranteed to land into the payees account, unless a dispute is raised by the payers credit card company or if Stripe had suspended the account as a result of one of more of the details supplied during the setup remaining in an unverified state for a period of time.
