I need to find a way to add a 2.7% Surcharge for Credit Card Orders or PayPal orders.
I run a wholesale site so adding 2.7% to my price wont help me much as my competition will look like they are cheaper than me. At the same time since i'm working with such small margins I can not eat the credit card fees or i will loose too much profit. Any recommendations?
Nick here from Shopify. Really good question!
As it stands it is not possible to add a credit card surcharge to any of your store orders within the Shopify admin. There is however a couple of workarounds which you can apply to achieve this, one of which comes in the form of an app and the other being via your shipping rates. Let's take a closer look into both of these methods:
Hope this helps!
All the best, Nick
The app allows you to add extra fee's to the orders in general here not the payment methods specifically. The app developers touch on this in the app description which you can see below:
It could be worth your time to reach out to the developers of the app directly to find out more information about how exactly this works as they would know best. You can reach contact them directly from their Order & Product Fees webpage here.
