Auto Calculate Credit Card Fee or online payment fee and show on Invoice

Started by Michael Martion -   in Feature Requests | Not planned

I'd like to see a feature that automatically calculates a credit card charge and adds it to an invoice. As it stands now, If someone clicks through on the PayPal button, there's no ability to add the credit card charge. So the vendor is forced to wear the charge. Or do some convoluted narration on the invoice itself to explain the balances.

Becasue of this I am not offering a credit card facility, which I know is costing me business, but the potential for error going down the other path is quite large.

The invoice could/would look like
- Total including GST (amount owing if paying by cash, cheque, EFT)
- Finance (creadit card) charge
- Total amount owing (if paying by credit/debit card)

Updating the official reply here, team. Hasn’t been scheduled into this year’s plans, but I’ll keep you all informed of changes in this area.

If this is essential to your business you may need to look into the solution our Add-on Partner eWay came up with for this - read up on that here.

Alternatively, there is a manual way to show a Credit Card, or PalPal percentage increase on an invoice using Docx Templates - I’ve outlined this in one of my previous responses above.
