F. Clementi gives an answer for PayPal bank statements.
Is it true also for other banking systems, like Ogone or others?
In my case the bank statement is NOT showing the gross amount AND the commission retained from it.
Plus some commissions/fees amounts are partially giving rise to VAT.

In my opinion - commissions and fees related to a commercial or financial transactions are an issue "on their own" ; they may be happening for numerous transactions. (commercial deals for instance whith a commission, or an annual rebate based on the turnover made for a product or a group of products). These amounts need to be accrued for in the books at the end of periods, when their payment is postponed at the end of another period.

Thus it makes me think that commissions payment fees  might be a new  object (new?) to be handled as a separate one and then the bank reconciliation mecanism/workflow will do the applicable matching with the initial/original transaction.

I think you have to register you payment using the bank statement (instead of the 'Register payement' button on the invoice
The bank statement reconciliation view allows to handle the fees (and any other adjustement).

Using the recent PayPal module, how should we up Odoo for properly representing the fees incurred for payment processing?

Example: Invoice goes out for US$100, which customer pays using PayPal. Cost of processing is 4.20 and US$95.80 is left in my PayPal account.

When registering Payment for the invoice, I enter US$100, but that is not all there is to it. How should I do so that the $4.20 is automatically configured to go under PayPal Bank Fees account for example?
