There is no fee to sign up for ECHOage and no minimum amount required to use the service. Once your party is over, ECHOage deducts $2.00 from your gift amount per contribution for payment processing. This fee is paid by the party host so that the guests of the party pay $0.00 in fees when submitting their contributions. EXAMPLE: If you receive five $20 contributions to your party, $10 will deducted for payment processing and you will receive the remaining balance of $40 for your gift. NOTE: If one family brings 2 children to the party and gives one contribution, the fee is only $2.00.
