If you choose to pass our fees along to your customers, there are options for whether or not you'd like to display our fees on their invoice. You can include the fee in your service price or have a separate invoice line item that details our fees.
Include fee in service price:
Example: the fee for a primary service called "Dog Walk" is set at $10.00. Enabling this feature will increase the price of a "Dog Walk" by $0.20 to $10.20 and remove the technology fee line item from the invoice.
