If you've integrated a Stripe account and changed your invoice setting so that your client pays transaction fees, you may be a bit confused when viewing your Stripe dashboard.

When passing the transaction fees to your client, the fees essentially are billed on top of the amount due on your invoice.  This increases the amount paid by your client, but leaves you (the contractor) with the full invoice amount after the transaction fees are deducted.

Example invoice with client paying transaction fees:

Amount Due: $100
Transaction Fees: $2.90
Amount Paid By Client: $102.90
Amount Received By You (Contractor): $100.00

For this example above, your Stripe dashboard would show a payment of $102.90 upfront with a net of $100.00.  So, you may think you're paying the transaction fees, but they've actually been charged to your client.
