What are the transaction fees?

The transaction fees are set at a fixed 2.4%.

Is there an annual/monthly fee?

Nope, Create Payments really costs nothing. :-)

Are there any additional fees?

All merchants selling online are required by law to assert their PCI compliance. As Create Payments is powered by Worldpay, they provide a service, "SaferPayments", to assist in ensuring that you have a mechanism to validate your PCI compliance. SaferPayments is offered at a low cost annual fee of £29.99 (+VAT) for all Create Payments customers and is entirely optional.

If you do not wish to join the SaferPayments programme and would rather handle your PCI compliance yourself, that's no problem. Becoming PCI DSS compliant is free, but can be tricky so if you use an external provider they can charge for their services too.

You will have up 60 days to provide the SaferPayments team with your PCI certificate and assert your compliance. If after 60 days you have not done so, you will be chagred £9.99 (+VAT) a month by Worldpay to cover the increased risk. After 12 months this fee increases to £12.99 (+VAT), so best to submit your certificate as soon as possible.
