Shopify and Their Scam

Ok, I am a little ticked off here.  It has come to my attention that Shopify keeps the transaction fee (2.9% + $0.30) even if the customer returns the item and your store refunds the full amount.  Sure, I could put in my clauses a restocking fee, but I do not want to deter traffic because of that either.  To me it is not good business practice.

So for instance, I recently had a $1,550.00 place yesterday.  It was a bulk order for a high quantity of parts. Now, I stand by my products, but what if my customer decides they want to return the item for a refund.  As a good person, and a store trying to build its brand, I would accept the return.  Here's the kick to the nuts.  Shopify will not return my 2.9% + $0.30 transaction.  I will do the math for you, $45.25.  So now I have to make that hit up somewhere else.  All for a computer to process numbers a data sheet?  Why am I paying a monthly fee?  Truly a despicable practice.
