100% cashback on instant withdrawal to company panel account

Using the Express Merchant Account (beta) will help you save on fee transactions without having to pay the hefty fees of 2.9% + 0.3 EUR from each transaction (passenger or driver) in EUR. Braintree also charges additional 1% fee applied to transactions presented outside of merchant home currency EUR.

Instant withdrawal to your company panel is a unique market offer from TaxiStartup, which gives you total control over your money. The money arrives in your account within a working day after you send a request.

How it works:

Express merchant

Example: A company in Europe receives a total of €1000 from 50 passengers and/or drivers via Visa card payments.

Card Processor fee applies: €29+$0,30*50 transactions=€44
A fee is taken from the balance: €1000 – €44=€956

Company owner receives:

Via Wire transfer: €956 – €5 (wire fee) = €951 to bank account.
Via Instant withdrawal: €956 + €44 (TaxiStartup cashback) = €1000 to company panel account.

Instant activation within 24 hours

TaxiStartup will activate your merchant account within 24 hours or even earlier after receiving a $1000 chargeback/fraud* deposit.
