How much does it cost?
When you sell, it’s just 2% of the transaction value in Cars & Motor plus a 30c fixed fee (inc. VAT) (TBC)

Step 1: Switch on Deposits
When placing or editing your ad, you can now choose between “Accept Full Payment” and “Accept Card Deposits”. To start accepting deposits, select the “Accept Card Deposits” option.
Step 2: Enter your deposit value
Once you have chosen “Accept Card Deposits”, you’ll now be asked to enter a value that you would like to receive from buyers who are interested in your product. Please consider that this value is a small percentage of the price.
Step 3: ‘Pay Deposit’ button now shows on ads
Your ads should now show a “Pay Deposit” button which means it's ready to accept deposits from buyers interested in your vehicle.
When a buyer initiates a deposit, you will be notified via email.
Step 4: Contact your buyers when you are notified of a deposit
Please contact the buyer before you accept or reject a deposit. If you accept and then need to refund the deposit after, you will incur additional charges.

How long does it take for the funds to transfer to me?
When you start processing live payments from your customers with Stripe, you won’t receive your first payout until 7–14 days after receiving your first successful payment. The first payout usually takes a little longer in order to establish the Stripe account. Processing subsequent payouts then happens according to your account’s payout schedule (Ireland is 7 calendar days)." That can be found here: https://stripe.com/docs/payouts.
