Payment Surcharge

tom — Feb 16, 2014 06:48AM MST

I would like the option to add a surcharge to a certain payment type, preferably Credit Card.

I read on another post that this feature would be added by October/November 2013; is this feature any closer to being added?

Thanks.

Hi Tom.

I am sorry, not yet. It got pushed back because of some higher priority features. I will revisit this in March, April time frame. Everyone else, please let me know if you are interested in this feature also.

Thanks, Abel

Thanks Gianni.

Which payment gateway are you most interested in (authorize.net, paypal…)? I would like to take care of the most requested ones first.

Thanks, Abel

Definatly paypal, cash and cheque.
Usually, you don't set a surcharge on a cheque or cash, just to cover your online processing costs.

Thanks Gianni.

I will go ahead and add them to all. The way things are going, I think I should have it ready in the next few weeks.

I would definitely use this feature for PayPal and Credit Card payments. As a very small business, I can't afford to offer these gateways to clients without this feature.

Hi Emma.

Yup, already in the works :-) I will release it as part of v2.1. I may need to do one or two minor releases before that but please look for that version.

Hi Emma.

I am afraid no. I actually did but then I stumbled upon terms and conditions of the merchants and they specifically prohibit this. So I removed it and instead added a discount for check and cash payment profiles.

That will work. Thank you.
