Will my credit card payment incur additional fees or charges?
Customers in USA / Canada:
Makedo is an Australian company accepting USD payments using Shopify Payments.
Some banks treat this as an international transaction, and therefore may charge you a small fee. These "international transaction fees" or "foreign currency fees" are charged to the cardholder by the cardholder's bank. If your bank applies this charge, it may appear as a separate transaction on your credit card or added by your bank to the Makedo invoice total. In our experience, the fee is generally around 1-2% of the invoice total.
As this fee is external to our billing system, we are not able to include the charges on an invoice issued by Makedo.
If you are aware of an additional charge and require reconciliation for your school's invoicing, please contact us here:
US and Canadian customers are charged in USD for all orders, with no currency conversion.
International customers are charged in USD, and depending on your location there may be a conversion fee that is applied by your bank.
UK and EU customers are charged in EUR, and depending on your location there may be a conversion fee that is applied by your bank.
Australian customers are charged in AUD for all orders, with no currency conversion.
Any additional fees are entirely dependent on the policy of the Credit Card issuing bank.
NOTE: To ensure you are not charged an International Transaction Fee, payment can be made using your credit card via the PayPal gateway at checkout. This will incur no additional charges and Guest payments do not require a PayPal account. Payment via the PayPal gateway is currently available for Makedo customers in the USA/Canada and International stores.
