Credit Card Surcharge (depending on which c/card is used)

Credit Card Surcharge (depending on which c/card is used)

We would like to add a % credit card surcharge in checkout, with the ability to have different c/card surcharge % depending on which c/card or payment is selected (i.e. PayPal 2.6% / Mastercard & Visa 1.75% / Amex 2.9% )

Can anyone suggest how this can be done ?? or if there is an app that can be installed that will do this

Thank you in advance for your assistance

Regards

Hi, Im looking at this right now as being based in Australia with most customers based overseas, we get absolutely stung with currency conversion fees (2%), plus the C/card fee 2.9% plus the $0.20. For our average order value it totals to around 5.1%!  Im in the process of reviewing two apps - "UpCharge Fees Addons Surcharge" which is $9.99 p/m (rating 4.2/136 reviews) and Magical Product Fess which is $12.99 p/m (rating 4.8/41 reviews).  I believe the latter (Magical Product Fees) supports Percentage  based fees however I dont know yet if you can set that at a payment type (ie credit card) level . If not, then a workaround may be you set a weighted average % fee based.  So if say 80% of payments were with Amex (2.9%) and 20% were with M/card (1.75%), then you might set the fee at say 2.67%.  I'm going to test both out this next month to see how they go. Hope this helps.

Update: Re the "Magical Product Fees" app - i just noticed this in their FAQ: 

"Can I charge fees based on the payment method used for an order? For example, can my fee be charged only if a credit card is used to pay for the order? No. Fees are applied based on the products they are set to be applicable to and the set “Rules”, not the payment method in use.".  So for me, if all else with the app is ok, I'll be setting a weighted average % fee based on (historical) payment methods used.
