I've been paid through Quickbooks Self Employed and I noticed that I'm charged about 3% as a "transfer fee." Is there a way I can avoid this fee? Why do I have this fee?

Welcome to the Community, charles.felux.

Allow me to enlighten you on the additional charges that you have received.

Merchant account processors, such as QuickBooks Online Payments, charge a variety of fees for providing you with credit card processing services.

While ACH bank transfers are free, a transaction fee of 2.9% of the bill amount plus 25 cents is charged for credit card payments.

For more details about QuickBooks Payments fees and how it works, you can check on this article: QuickBooks Payments. The contact information is included on the website if you need further assistance. 

If you have additional questions, feel free to add a comment below. Have a great rest of your day!

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
