The 40% is a service fee necessary to maintain the quality and usability of the platform. We have invested in a high quality website platform that ensures seamless uploading of plans and a very easy to navigate user experience. In addition we have invested in multiple payment options to make it easier to buy your products so that we have an easy-to-use payment system integrated into the website that requires no login etc. to remove any bottlenecks from the buyer. Some similar websites charge up to 50% service fees to cover these costs.

The processing fee will only be €1 whether you take out €25 or €200 out of your account – as teacherplans will cover the rest of the processing cost.
