We've got a couple of great ways you can use to pass the fee on to your client using features that Sunrise already has.

One way is to add a line item to your estimate or invoice, which you can call "credit card fee" or "convenience fee" or anything you feel will communicate the meaning to your client. Then just calculate what 2.9% of your total is and make that the cost of the item.

Many clients are willing to pay this fee for the added convenience of paying with their credit card. Many Sunrise businesses successfully pass the cost onto their client using one of the two options listed above.
