Let’s talk about money

What’s cerq-pay and how does it work?

cerq-pay is our fast, easy payment system that integrates with Stripe 
Connect Express. Not to be confused with cerq-cash (a digital wallet for buyers to make shopping a one-click experience), our cerq-pay system allows you to get paid quickly. It’s also how you’ll pay the cerqular team your monthly membership fee. Just like other online marketplace platforms, sellers are responsible for any transaction fees. To learn more about what those fees are, please click here.

What is the monthly membership fee?

We offer 4 levels of membership which vary based on your shop and its 
needs. All of our memberships are paid on a monthly basis, but we offer anywhere from 10-20% off if you opt-in to an annual membership. See below for full details:
