By 6th October 2017 Support, Xero Help No Comments

There are many payment services you can link with your Xero account so that you get paid more quickly. However, they all come with processing fees. Sometimes you might be happy to absorb the cost of this fee, but you might also want to pass the fee on to the paying customer.

You can now do this in Xero.

To do so, go to General Settings / Invoice Settings / Payment Services:

Then Edit / Service details:
