How to add Fees to Gifts

I need to add fees to gifts, how can I do that?
 To record a gift that has fees associated with it, such as a credit card gift or gift received from an online donation do the following:
  1. Enter the gross amount into the Gift Amount field.
  2. On the same Gift record enter the fee as a negative amount in the Non-Gift Amount field.
  3. Manually enter the debit and credit accounts for the Non-Gift fee amount on the General Ledger page of the Gift.  Debit the asset account in which the Gift deposit is made and credit the appropriate expense account for the Fund receiving the fee.
  4. You may want to setup a new Gift Type code to identify Gifts with fees for reporting purposes.
