Has there been an update to allow for the store owner to apply at customer checkout a surcharge  on credit card or paypal payments?  I read this wasn't possible a while back but now it's becoming legal in Canada I we wish to explore this option.

I'm jumping in on this topic as well, has there been any progress lately? Shopify has rolled out a number of updates lately, but unfortunately this doesn't seem to be included.


With increased bank fees, this has become a serious pressing issue, and I'm sure there are 1000's of shops that would be highly interested in tis feature. But since it discourage the Shopify payment method it is not likely to be introduced at all.


I'm considering moving to another platform as I'm getting more experience in e-commerce I recognize a number of limitations with Shopify where other e-commerce platforms are more customer focused.

@gre You are a Shopify Partner right......does this mean you have any insight as to IF Shopify actually has adding a Credit Card surcharge on their radar?

Plus Shopify is increasing their fees from 2.7% to 2.9% despite the banks here in NZ reducing their credit card fees🙁
