Enter a bank service fee while using a third-party merchant service in QuickBooks Online

Learn how to record a bank service fee while using a third-party merchant service in QuickBooks Online.

If you are using a third-party merchant service for accepting credit card payments from your customers, there are bank service fees that the credit card company will deduct from the payment. As a result, the payment amount that shows on the bank register will not match the deposit amount in QuickBooks Online.

Once the transaction is recorded and you know the bank service fee, you can enter the fee as a negative amount on the Bank Deposits screen when depositing a payment. This ensures that your bank register matches the bank statement.
