Hello @Jack134 ,


Shopify's standard transaction fees for online credit card payments in Singapore are typically comprised of two components:

  1. Percentage Fee: This is a percentage of the transaction amount. As you mentioned, Shopify's standard percentage fee in Singapore is 3.6% for online credit card payments.
  2. Fixed Fee: This is a fixed amount applied per transaction. For Singapore, the fixed fee is SGD 0.50.

You can see the breakdown of the fees in your Shopify account by go to Settings -> Payment Providers -> select the payment gateway you are using


Hope this can help.
