The fee for processing an online transaction (also called an “Internet Convenience Fee”) is 4%.
The fee for an NSF (Non-Sufficient Funds) bank return is $20.00. Our bank charges us each time we submit an ACH debit that is returned NSF, our policy is to pass that fee on to the person or persons that created the ACH debit.
