Do payouts reflect deductions for shipping and fees?

Do payouts reflect deductions for shipping and fees?

2 0 0

Perhaps a stupid question, but do payouts reflect the deductions of shipping, subscriptions and other fees? Or do I have to deduct these manually to get my bottom line?  For example, if my total payouts for the year are $9100, is that how much I made after all the fees came off, or is this my revenue before the fees, shipping, etc?

Hi, @UrsulaB.


Thank you for reaching out! 


Your Shopify payment payouts will not deduct shipping charges, subscription fees, or other fees besides credit card fees. Shipping charges and subscription fees will be charged to the credit card you have on file with which you have been paying your subscription fee. The only time your payout will have any deductions is a refund or a chargeback, as well as the credit card fee.


If your payout total for the year was $9100, that is how much revenue you made before shipping charges and subscription fees. 


Please let me know if you have any further questions!

Hi Emily / Shopify Team, 

We are implementing Shopify Payments Payout sync as part of our API solution. I have a follow up to above question. As part of GET single payout response and Transactions response, I currently see shipping labels , shopify fees, merchant fees etc. Do these include the subscription fees as well in the same report? For example, would $38 per month of Basic plan be included in one of the Payout reports? Or these fees are charged separately to Shopify clients?
