Fees and Transactions

How Can I Handle the JobNimbus Payments Credit Card Fees?

Processing fees are charged each time a credit/debit card transaction is completed through JobNimbus Payments, but you can choose how those are handled in your account.

A Credit/Debit Card handling fee, also known as a "processing fee", is the fee that is paid every time a credit card is used to complete a transaction.

The Credit/Debit Card processing fee with JobNimbus Payments is 3.2% + $0.29 per transaction. This means if a transaction is for $1,000, the fee will be calculated at $32.29.

The way you handle the Credit/Debit Card fee is determined in your Payments settings within JobNimbus.

  • Click on your profile icon in the top right corner
  • Select Settings from the drop-down menu

The different ways you can handle the fees are as follows:

  • Don't pass fee, don't add to margin
    • This method will not pass the fee onto your customers; instead, you will pay the fee. The fees will not show on the invoice or be budgeted into your project.
  • Pass fees to the customer
    • This method will show the convenience fee amount when the customer clicks into the "Make a payment" screen from the invoice.

      • The total convenience fee is 3.2% of the total amount paid, in this case, the $5,008.92, plus a small $0.29 additional transaction fee. 
      • When choosing "Pass fees to customer", please refer to your local and state laws to learn about any potential restrictions involved in passing processing/convenience fees to your customers.

    Note: if an invoice is created prior to adjusting these settings, it will not reflect the new configurations. It is recommended that you void or delete the old Invoice and create a brand new one in order for any changes to take effect
