When you set up quickbooks you can define your accounts and the purpose of each according to your company, but i would like to know based on your experience which one should be more appropiate
I may use Membership when i am paying to be a member of a selected group that will provide me or the organization any kind of reward. I see this more as an investment(I know is an expense)
CC fee i will be reflected as an expense but I want also to reflect that it's a fee that i am paying to the cc services.

So i am not sure what is the proper way to do it.

Please advise

You may want to talk to your tax professional for their advise. (I am not a CPA)

If you already have a "Membership" account, I would use that for this fee and note in the Memo field what it's for. If this is the only 'Membership Fee' you have, then I would leave it with you CC fees just make sure to note in the memo field. You can always move things if you need to when you talk to your tax professional.
