In order to maintain our website operational, we add a small amount to your payment for each of your projects. This charge is called the service fee.

The service fee is calculated based on your expert's total price for the project. Don't worry though, the more your expert charges for the project - the lower your service fee rate will be.

Here's the list of service fee rates charged by Studybay:

  1. For the prices up to $14.99 - 40%;
  2. For the prices between $15.00 and $29.99 - 35%;
  3. For the prices between $30.00 and $49.99 - 32%;
  4. For the prices of $50.00 and above - 28%.

Service fee is not included in the experts' prices for your project - the ones you see on your project page:

The full price that includes your service fee will be displayed after you select an expert.


In this case, we're choosing an expert with a price of $50. Your service fee is 28%, which sums up to $14. The total price for your project is $70.80 (as the transaction fee is also added on top):
