Startup Financial Model Template – Transaction Fee

Startup Financial Model Template – Transaction Fee


Excel spreadsheet template for Transaction Fee Business Model. Startup financial model templates for businesses using transaction or rental fees.



Use this model if you are planning on taking a transaction fee or rental fee as a revenue driver.

Models that use a transaction fee include:

  • Rental Fee Model like Chugg
  • Transaction Fee Model like 99Designs
  • If you are planning one side of a marketplace model, where you don’t own the product but take a fee on the product

Key financial model drivers are:

  • Number of transactions per month
  • Average transaction fee %

A risk in the financial model for transaction fees is starting the percentage too low. It’s much easier to discount a price from retail using promotions than it is to raise the price later.
