In order to process credit card payments, Commissions uses Stripe to facilitate the payment between client and designer. Designers are required to create a new Stripe account or link an existing Stripe account.
Using this method, Stripe deposits the payment to your Stripe account, while taking out the Commissions platform fee and credit card fees along the way. Stripe will also provide you with a 1099-K form at the end of the year if you reach their minimum thresholds.
In this arrangement, GameWisp/Commissions does not touch any of the money that you receive. The transaction is between you (the designer), and the client. We have found this to be the cleanest and most straightforward way to facilitate the transaction, and leaves you, the designer, in greater control of your funds.
