App that allows the addition of a tariff charge during checkout?

With the new US-China tariffs we are seeing a hit to our bottom line as some of the products we sell are made in China. Has anyone come across an app where a say 5% tariff charge can be added? Almost like a tax line.

You can do something like that with Easy Ship (I've used it for VAT so assuming you can include custom tariffs).

 

It would probably be easier to manage though by factoring that as a COGS and change your prices on those products accordingly (or adjust shipping prices to absorb it)

Thanks we'll check out Easy Ship! It would be a huge process to update all the COGS. We also do not anticipate the tariffs lasting forever. Lastly, we don't want to raise prices across the board. The price is technically the same. The government has issued a tax and we want that to be transparent to customers.
