When you connect your FreshBooks account, there will be two checkboxes selected by default:

**Automatically add customer fees to invoices

1. Automatically add customer fees to invoices

When this checkbox is selected, there will be an additional line item automatically added to your FreshBooks invoice when a customer opens a payment plan with an added fee.

Example: If a customer owes you $1,000 and they open a payment plan with a fee of 5%, a line item will be automatically added to the associated FreshBooks invoice for $50.

2. Automatically add merchant fees to expenses

When this checkbox is selected, the Partial.ly merchant fee for every transaction charged with Partial.ly will be automatically added to the selected FreshBooks Expense account. Just select the the expense account that you'd like to use from the dropdown list. If you'd like to define the name of the Expense account, just add a new Expense account in your FreshBooks account and it will display in the list in your Partial.ly merchant settings.
