There are several ways you can get paid on the Jobox app. You can learn more about how payments work here.

When you get paid using a credit or debit card, you pay credit card fees. The rate of fees you pay depends on the total amount of transactions you process in Jobox, as well as the way you process the payment.

When you process a card payment using tap, dip or swipe, your fees are lower than when you enter the customer's card details manually in the app. That's because the risk of fraud is higher when a card is entered manually.

Credit or debit card fees using tap, dip or swipe

To process a card using tap, dip or swipe, you can either use the Jobox card reader, or you can use our new Tap-to-Pay feature. Your tap, dip or swiper rate will depend on your monthly sales amount in the last 3 months:

  • If you generate more than $450,000 of monthly sales, your fee will be 2.3% + 10 cents

  • If you generate between $200,000 and $450,000 of monthly sales, your fee will be 2.4% + 10 cents

  • If you generate less than $200,000 of monthly sales, your fee will be 2.6% + 10 cents

Credit or debit card fees for card details entered manually

To process a card manually, you enter the customer's credit card details directly in the app. Your fee for manual entry will also depend on your monthly sales amount in the last 3 months:

  • If you generate more than $450,000 of monthly sales, your fee will be 3.2% + 15 cents

  • If you generate between $200,000 and $450,000 of monthly sales, your fee will be 3.3% + 15 cents

  • If you generate less than $200,000 of monthly sales, your fee will be 3.5% + 15 cents

Why is the fee different between manual and non-manual card processing?

The risk of fraud is higher when you enter credit card details manually rather than using a payment terminal such as the Jobox card reader.

Manually entered transactions are charged a higher fee because there is no proof that the card is present at the time of charge. This makes it harder to win disputes and results in higher costs for everyone.

Offering a lower rate for tapped, dipped and swiped transactions encourages everyone in our community to accept more secure payments, which helps reduce our costs and pass on the savings to you.

Don’t have a card reader yet? No problem! Our new Tap-to-Pay feature lets you receive customer payment just with your phone. You can learn more about Tap-to-Pay in this article.

How do I lower my card processing fee?

Jobox looks at your total sales in the last 3 months to determine your processing fee. When you reach a certain amount of sales, your fee will decrease as you move into a new tier. For example, when you reach $200,001 of sales within 3 months, your processing fee will go down to 2.4% for tap, dip or swipe, and 3.3% for manual entry.
