Shopify monthly fee expense account?

Hello all,

I am just wondering what an appropriate expense account would be for the monthly fee we are charged by Shopify? We are at the Pro level, so Shopify charges us $79/month. If it were just for a website, I would classify it as an Advertising/Marketing Expense. If Shopify were just a credit card processor, I would classify it under Credit Card Processing Fees. But since that $79 is actually going toward several different purposes (website, POS, merchant account), I'm having trouble figuring out how to expense that charge. Anyone want to tell me how you expense your monthly fee?

Many thanks!

Hi Davy,

Well, Shopify is technically a service - so maybe try expensing it as a Service Fee? I haven't done any accounting for a long, long time, haha
