Meylah charges a 2.75% transaction fee on all sales that occur on your Meylah store.

9. Can I accept funds manually?

You can accept funds manually only for any physical product that you are selling. If you accept funds manually, then you will have to change the inventory of your product (for example: from 3 items down to 2 items). For online tutorials and digital products, you will not be able to accept funds manually because your customer will not be able to access this information since it is all digital.
