Transparent Pricing: Eliminating Hidden Costs

Transparency is key with Bread4Scrap. The pricing structure is clear, eliminating surprise costs.

For scrap yards, each card costs £6.50, requiring a minimum order of 100 cards without additional setup or loading fees. Cardholders incur a 2% transaction fee (min £0.20, max £1.50), a £1.50 ATM withdrawal fee, and a £1k total daily withdrawal limit.
The cost of business payments is both competitive and transparent. Faster Payments/SEPA cost 35p, Swift Payments £10, while foreign exchange transactions are marked up by a mere 1%.

It’s easy to start with Bread4Scrap, with three short steps to complete before funds are ready to spend: sign up, add customers, and load funds.
