Since we are located in Israel your credit card might charge you a foreign transaction fee. Most credit cards do not charge this fee, thus most of our clients will not see this fee. If they do it is usually in the 1% – 2% range. It is important to stress that we do not collect this fee. It is entirely between you and your bank or credit card and subject to your contract with them. If you are unsure, call your credit card company. We do not offer refunds for these fees since we are not associated with them in any way — only your bank or credit card can reimburse you this fee.
