Why my invoice amount generated is not as same as that I receive in my account

For example, Assume you have raised 100 dollars from an invoice for which the customer has paid you. 

The amount that you receive in your bank account is 96.85 dollars. The gateway charges a fixed amount as a percentage over the transaction. For a 100 dollar transaction, 3% could be a fixed charge along with 0.25 dollars as a transactional fee.

Eg; Stripe, Braintree, has a fixed amount with a small percentage that is deducted from the transaction that is processed.
