What is the Rent/Wallet Loading Transaction Fee?

This is an additional fee charged on rent payments and wallet loading made using OneCard credit card on third-party apps/merchants like PayTM, Cred, PhonePe, etc. These payments will attract an additional charge of 1% over and above the convenience fees charged by these apps (between 1-2%).

For example (considering the third party merchant fee is 1.5%),

If a rent of Rs. 10,000 is to be paid via a third party merchant app, it will amount to:

Rs. 10,000 + 1.5% fee (charged by the third party merchant app) = Rs. 10,150

Rs. 10,150 + 1% fee (charged by OneCard) = Rs. 10,251.5 + GST

Is the rent Transaction Fee applicable to OneCard's in-app rent payment?

There will not be any Transaction Fee charged on OneCard’s in-app rent payments.

Only a Convenience Fee of 1.5% will be levied on the overall amount.

For example, if a rent of Rs. 10,000 is to be paid via the OneCard app, it will amount to:

Rs. 10,000 + 1.5% Convenience Fee = Rs. 10,150 + GST
