Acquiring fee

What it is and what it is for

To ensure accurate accounting of your expenses, it's important to account for the bank's commission charged for each card payment. This commission is a fixed percentage that is deducted from your company's revenue. You can set up automatic deduction of the commission after receiving the card payment if you wish to have a more detailed record of your expenses.

Acquiring fee is a system expense item (read more about payment items in the article). The expenses under the Acquiring fee item will be displayed in the Report for the period and in the P&L report.

After a successful transaction, it will appear in the list of financial transactions. If there was a commission charged by the bank for the card payment, it will also be recorded in a separate transaction. By clicking on the link provided in the financial transaction for the commission, you can navigate to the main transaction for the service or purchase, and vice versa.

To view the operation of debiting the acquiring fee, configure the user access rights to transaction types in the Finance section. Grant the user access rights to all types of transactions, or, if only to the selected ones, then check the Acquiring fee item.
