What are the transaction fees for WePay?

When processing online payments through WePay, there is a transaction fee included. The transaction fee is taken out of each payment that is processed before being deposited into your account.
 
Charging the credit card fee / transaction fee back to your clients is against some countries' and state laws (also known as a convenience fee, service fee or surcharge).
 
FreshBooks is ending its relationship with WePay on July 15, 2024. WePay is only available for existing and Select plan users currently. If you'd like to accept online payments, review other online payment options here.
