Accounting for card collection fee to payment processor

Hi there. I use a third party card payment machine, and they charge a small 2.7% per transaction,

But

When I put they payment as ‘card’ in the payment type box I need to remove the charge or my banking will be out (for example, I charge £100 for work, but only receive £97.30 if the customer uses card payment)

This will make a difference at the year end. Can anyone please advise on how to set up card payments correctly (basically so the charge is removed post payment) so my banking total is correct…??

You would treat this like any other merchant account (PayPal for example). There’s a good write up in the knowledge base for this:
