We use Stripe on our shopping cart. Stripe automatically takes out their fee then sends our bank the remaining sales revenue. How do we account for the fee Stripe takes?

We have an online membership site (all digital, no physical products).

When a customer pays for access to our membership portal, Stripe takes out their credit card processing fee.

Stripe then automatically sends the remaining revenue to our business bank account and we are able to reconcile our QBO account for just the revenue that hits the bank account.

How do we account for the Credit Card Processing Fee within QuickBooks Online which is NOT automatically populated within QBO?

We currently do not have Stripe integrated with QuickBooks Online to automatically post the fee (and are happy to create an integration if we know it will work properly).

And how would we Categorize the fee in the Chart of Accounts for taxes?



You can edit the transaction and create a split transaction, to account for the processing fee, and the amount of the sale, coding the transaction fee to payment processing fees. Hope this helps.

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.
