There are no sign-up fees, non-utilisation fees or any other hidden costs.

Who pays, the customer or the supplier?

However Suppliers can provide an ‘early payment discount’ equal to the Transaction Fee. To facilitate this Pay4 provides a Certificate of Interest direct to the Supplier confirming the ‘early payment discount’ to be applied.
