Setting up Payment Gateway Based Fees in WooCommerce

This documentation is for the Advanced Fees for WooCommerce plugin.

Using the Advanced Fees plugin you can very easily setup a payment gateway based fee in WooCommerce. You can setup a cost or a discount based on the payment gateway. Of course you have the full flexibility to use fixed amounts, percentages and advanced fee settings such as based on the cart weight, present categories / shipping classes / products.

Adding additional fees or discounts to a payment gateway can be very useful in order to make one option more attractive then the other, or to ensure you don't lose on any handling cost by the payment provider. 

Setting up the payment gateway based fee

To get started, open a existing fee, of add a new fee via WooCommerce -> Settings -> Fees. Next you can select 'Payment gateway' from the conditions drop down. When selected, the value field will start loading as a drop down field with the registered payment gateways from which you can select the one you want to setup the fee for.
