Hey, @balsy. Welcome to Shopify!
Transaction fees are only charged if you are not using Shopify Payments as your payment gateway. While using Shopify Payments, you can expect the credit card processing fees to be deducted from each transaction, however no additional transaction fees will be charged.
Are you using a third party processor? If so, the transaction fee amount is determined by the subscription plan you are on and is applied to the total value of the order the customer places. For example, if your customer makes a $50 purchase on your site + $5 for shipping for a total order value of $55.00, then the transaction fee would be applied to $55.00 amount. You can read more about payment processing fees in this Help Doc.
The transaction fee amount per plan, as well as the credit card processing fees for Shopify Payments is found on the Pricing page here. For third party gateways, please contact your provider directly to inquire about their credit card rates, as well as any other fees per use they may require.
