Clients, especially the ones who use the Nium Platform to embed the payment oriented services from the Nium Platform in their products delivered to the end-customers, have two ways to charge fees for the various kinds of services offered.
Nium Platform comes packed with a list of predefined fees options, and clients can simply work with the program contact from Nium to configure the fees in their programs as part of Client setup. These fees will be automatically levied by system to the Customer as per the logic defined. Please refer to the below table for the predefined list of fees.

At times, clients might find it convenient and flexible to charge a fee that is not already part of the list of standard pre-defined fees. For instance, clients could use this approach to charge a monthly subscription fee, or to charge a fee based on the inward payment option used. Clients can use the Charge Fee API to charge the custom fee to the account holder's wallet in any of the currencies enabled in the account holder's wallet. System will handle the fee processing (in terms of accounting) in a similar manner to the way it handles the predefined fee. The fees thus collected can later be adjusted as part of the client's regular invoicing.
Please consult with the Nium legal & compliance team and receive approval prior to charging any customer fees. Please do not use this API to charge fees without explicit approval from Nium. Please reach out to your Customer Success, Sales and Solution Engineering teams at Nium for further guidance. Any fees charged must be disclosed in the required customer terms and conditions as determined by Nium legal & compliance.
