Credit card transaction fees

I use QuickBooks online and Gopayment. I received my first credit card payment. The app recognized the transaction fee, but then the total amount was deposited into my bank account, the fee was not taken out before depositing in my account. Is this a mistake? I figured the transaction fee would be taken from the total and then what’s left be deposited into my bank account.

I’m happy to see you in the Community, tcsmitty.


QuickBooks groups the entire customer payments processed for that day into a bank deposit. It records only one bank deposit per day.


However, the online program separates payments and fees so you get all the details. They appear as separate transactions on your bank statements.


Since the transaction fee is not taken out, let’s manually enter it in your company. Let me help and guide you to accomplish this task.

 

  1. Open the invoice for the customer you’re working on.
  2. Click an empty line below the Product/Service column.
  3. Select Add new from the drop-down and choose Service.
  4. Fill in the fields with the correct information.
  5. Enter the description of the transaction fee in the Name field.
  6. Type a negative figure in the Amount USD column.
  7. Click Save and close.

 

Once done, add the bank to your chart of accounts. This way, all deposits, and fees are automatically tracked to the account. Check out this article for the step-by-step process. It includes information on how the program records the fee on the account: Record payments deposits and fees in QuickBooks Online.


For future reference, these resources contain answers to frequently asked questions about the Payments feature. From there, you’ll find instructions on how to configure your chart of accounts to track fees.

Thank you for your response.  Let me clarify my issue: It's not an issue of recording the transactions in quickbooks.  The deposit to my bank account was for the full amount.

I charged a customer for $6,002.49.  The fee is $204.33.  But the amount deposited into my bank account was fore the total $6,002.49.  Why didn't quickbooks take their fee?

Thanks for getting back here, tcsmitty.

 

The fees will depend on how you processed the payment. If the amount was not taken out, contacting our Merchant Services Team is the best thing to do here. They can help review your account and confirm the charge.

What is the transaction fee for American Express cards?

Thank you for joining in on the thread, kmautobrokersllc.

 

The fees for AMEX DIRECT cards are the same as the other card types, 2.4% for swiped, 3.4% for keyed-in, and 2.9% for e-invoice payment. However, for AMEX ESA, I'm gonna have to let you contact our Chat or Phone team about this as they are the only ones who can check and share this information with you.

 

You may also want to check about the funding time frame for your additional reference.

 

If you have other concerns, feel free to go back to this thread. Take care and have a good one!
