At the moment, payments received through HoneyBook incur processing fees of 3% or 1.5% for credit card and ACH bank transfer payments respectively. The processing fees are comparable to those you would see in Paypal, Square, and others, and are not in addition to what you would pay when using other systems. Currently, though, there is not a built-in way to pass the processing fees along to your clients.
We recommend researching your state's laws on the matter, or speaking with a financial professional — in many states, it is illegal to pass processing fees on to a client.
If you live in a state where it is legal, it's possible to add these charges as line items in your Invoices or Proposals. However, again, we'd recommend researching your state's requirements on messaging this to your clients, as the requirements may vary.
