Open Banking itself is not generally a 'service' that can or should be charged for.
Open Banking can be thought of as the underlying digital standard or scheme that powers a whole variety of exciting financial services in the UK and beyond.
Many of these services powered by Open Banking are indeed free, and this includes Wonderful's direct, account-to-account charity donation service.
When it comes to making a donation through Wonderful, there are no fees or charges whatsoever.
