Proper reporting on online giving fees.

by Tony Tucker
(Rock HIll SC)

If someone gives online $100 and the church is assessed a $ $2 fee, how should that be recorded?

Should revenue be credited for $100, Cash debited for $98 and Online Tithe Expense debited for $2?

OR

Should revenue be credited for $98 and cash debited for $98?
