Card Payments

As Circle charges a processing fee that includes a fixed amount and a percentage for card payments, we enforce a minimum amount when creating a payment. This is to make sure that you don’t lose money on a payment.


There are no maximum card payment amount constraints. Obviously, the underlying card networks might apply constraints that are outside of our control.

Other Payment Methods 🔜

We're constantly working on new payments rails support. We will publish the parameters for maximum and minimum amounts on those payment methods once they become available.


There are no pre-defined limits to the individual or aggregate payments / payouts amounts you can originate via API. Depending on the payment method, Circle might reserve the right to request that you maintain a minimum balance on your Circle account.
