When a payment declines, you are charged an authorization fee plus any pass-through fees the card brands assess during a decline. The cost to you is typically less than 20ยข on the high end.

If you would like to pass this fee through to your customers, you will want to create a charge item and call it a "Failed Payment Fee" or something like that. Then, you can add that fee to the account when a payment is declined.
