Pass through fund are revenue or not ?

Hi, I want to understand how to report income, revenue based on my business scenario.



Person A bought something for Person B for lets say $100 and charges $5 as service fee

However Person B is paying through my app as credit card payment of 105 + $2 app commission so total $107

The only profit for my business is $2, however $105 goes to Person A through us. 



is the whole $107 considered revenue ? or only $2 commission for app considered revenue?  , whats the right way to report these incomes. I am based out of Canada. Thanks for guidance.
