      What are the transaction fees for Stripe?

       

      When processing online payments through Stripe and FreshBooks Payments powered by Stripe, there is a transaction fee included. Depending on where you're located and whether the transaction is domestic (same country) or international (different country), different rates apply. The transaction fee is taken out of each payment that is processed before being deposited into your account.

      All transaction fees are automatically logged as Expenses in your FreshBooks account. You can also log into your Stripe dashboard to see your account-specific pricing and fees deducted from your transactions. For more information on processing fees, visit Stripe.

      If you want to charge the transaction fee back to your client, please check with your country and/or state's laws on this first (also known as a convenience fee, service fee or surcharge).
