Adding Cash Redemption Value (CRV) to specific products

Hello,

 

I am trying to find a solution to the issue of adding 'cart fees,' specifically CRV, for certain products in our online store. These fees would need to be associated with specific products and also be calculated by how many items with CRV attached are in the cart at checkout. For example, CRV for a single product is $0.20. If the customer has 6 of those products in the cart, the CRV would be $1.20. This CRV should be shown in the cart and at checkout above the subtotal of items and be calculated before taxes and shipping and to not include tax.

 

I attempted using a third-party app for this order fee, which worked up until our checkout page. Unfortunately, the third party app has limitations with Ajax checkout and cannot override the checkout.

 

Is there a way to modify the Ajax API to include these specific product fees to calculate and show CRV? This is a Cash Redemption Value, so our end customer purchasing the product has the ability to recycle the finished product and receive that redemption value back. It is important to us to not simply add this fee into the price of the product, but rather clearly state what the fee is so we are transparent with our customers about the added charge since this fee is mandatory by CA law.

Hi there,

Did you find a solution here? Going through the same thing right now.

Hello. Sadly, I haven’t heard back from the Shopify development team
regarding this issue. However, I reached out to several 3rd party
developers who seem confident they can add a cash redemption value at
checkout. We are in the process of setting this up now.

Hi there, 
I know someone asked already but since then, did you find a solution? 
If yes, I would love to know how did you manage it? 

Best,
Marion

Hi Marion,

Yes, I was able to find a workaround through a third party app. Although it
is not a native function of Shopify at the moment, this seems to work for
us.

I hired a 3rd party developer, BentoSMB Inc, who built CRV into our site
with the help of the Metafields Guru app. This requires some input from my
team for each new product, but is relatively simply.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your quick reply, 

I'm looking to apply this to One product, which is a cashback cheque that we send to the clients. They "purchase" it with their points. 
The cheque amount will depend on the Qty of points they want to redeem.

I have not found another solution as of yet for adding CRV. We ended up
including CRV in all of our product pricing rather than keeping it a
separate line item due to some reporting issues through the 3rd party
customization.
