Re: Transaction Fee

How should transaction fees be accounted for in net sales and gross profit?

9 0 1

Hello, I am pretty obsessive when it comes to bookkeeping and I just can't wrap my head around the transaction fee and where it should be accounted for.  When I look at net sales on the finance summary report, does that include the fees being taken out?  More importantly, when I look at my gross profit, does that account for transaction fees, or does that still need to be accounted for?

RE: Finance Report
1. Net sales DOES NOT factor in the Shopify fees
2. Gross Profit DOES NOT factor in the Shopify fees.

To get the fees, you have to go to the Payments tab and export it from there.

The previous reply is correct, all of that stuff is on different screens in Shopify.

If you would like to see fees on a single report along with your orders, you can use our free app Report Toaster. Please feel free to take a look and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
