WooCommerce: Add Checkout Fee for a Payment Gateway (e.g. PayPal)

Here’s a simple PHP snippet to add a fee to the checkout for every payment or for a specific payment gateway.

Please do remember that for certain payment gateways such as PayPal, adding checkout fees is currently against their Terms of Service so make sure to check this first.

As usual, this needs to be copied and pasted in your child theme’s functions.php file. Enjoy!

Add fee/surcharge to the WooCommerce Cart/Checkout

PHP Snippet #1: Add fee to checkout for all payment gateways – WooCommerce

}

PHP Snippet #2: Add fee to checkout for a specific payment gateway – WooCommerce

add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees', 'bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway' );
 
function bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway() {
 	$chosen_gateway = WC()->session->get( 'chosen_payment_method' );
  	if ( $chosen_gateway == 'paypal' ) {
		WC()->cart->add_fee( 'PayPal Fee', 5 );
	}
}

add_action( 'woocommerce_after_checkout_form', 'bbloomer_refresh_checkout_on_payment_methods_change' );
  
function bbloomer_refresh_checkout_on_payment_methods_change(){
    wc_enqueue_js( "
    	$( 'form.checkout' ).on( 'change', 'input[name^=\'payment_method\']', function() {
        	$('body').trigger('update_checkout');
        });
	");
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.3.

  1. Hi, what if I am using multicurrency on my web? with this snippet amount does not convert. I it possible to solve somehow?

    1. Hi Alex, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  2. Hi,

    I find a problem with the function, if the payment fails, the checkout page is shown but cash on delivery charge doesn’t show up even after changing methods. I’m using Flatsome and WooCommerce.
    If you add any product to cart and paying via online payment method, cancel the transaction and then once you’re redirected you’ll be able to see no COD charges are being applied. Is it any other hook which “run” in this page?
    Can You’ll please have a look at it?

    1. Not 100% sure, did you try with no other plugin than Woo and a default theme already?

      1. Hi, I have the same problem. It happens when the payment does not go thru the cart, but for example I send out a payment link for an order. It has a bit of a different checkout so the manual page update applied to “woocommerce_after_checkout_form” is not happening there. Any idea how can I trigger the same function in the payment link page?

        1. So you mean the “Order Pay” page?

  3. I would like to apply 1.95% of processing fee, if customer pays via any credit card. I have saferpay and twint setup as payment gateways. Could you please confirm if the code below needs any changes. Please suggest. Thanks!

  4. Hi Rodolfo,
    i tried Snippet #1 – works perfectly
    tried Snippet #2 – doesnt work 🙁
    Theme: Vantage

    1. Hi Serg, did you change anything in the snippet?

  5. Rodolfo you need to put a disclaimer because that practice is not legal in Europe and Italy. In rest of the world is legally.

    1. Ehm, it’s in the second paragraph of this same article already 😀

  6. Hello,
    I have a delivery fee based on the payment method (COD and CARD), which i’ve added using this plugin: “Payment Gateway Based Fees and Discounts for WooCommerce “, but if the client buys over 300 in total cart i want to remove this fees and delivery to them freely.

    So after a quick inspect i saw that the plugin insert the tax with the class of “fee” so i’ve tried to edit the snippet to remove all fees when the total in cart is over 300. I’ve added it into the child theme in function.php but nothing happens.

    This is the code:

    // Part 1: assign fee
      
    add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees', 'bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway' );
      
    function bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway() {
        $chosen_gateway = WC()->session->get( 'chosen_payment_method' );
         if ( $chosen_gateway == 'cod' && $woocommerce->cart->total > 300  ) {
           WC()->cart->remove_all_fees();
       }
    }
      
    // Part 2: reload checkout on payment gateway change
      
    add_action( 'woocommerce_review_order_before_payment', 'bbloomer_refresh_checkout_on_payment_methods_change' );
      
    function bbloomer_refresh_checkout_on_payment_methods_change(){
        ?>
        <script type="text/javascript">
            (function($){
                $( 'form.checkout' ).on( 'change', 'input[name^="payment_method"]', function() {
                    $('body').trigger('update_checkout');
                });
            })(jQuery);
        </script>
        <?php
    }

    Any ideas where i was wrong ?:D

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Fildiroi, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  7. Thanks for all the great snippets!

    The majority works great, and usually the easiest and most straight forward solution available.

    You really make woocommerce better by a lot!

    Thanks again for everything!!!

    1. Thanks! Which one didn’t work great?

  8. Hi there,
    thanks for sharing it with us.

    I should add 5€ extra as fee for Cod payment, I’ve got Envo Shop Pro theme.

    Does it suit with this code? What should pu instead of Paypal?

    1. Enter ‘cod’ instead of ‘paypal’

  9. Thank you!

    If you want to take a fee of 5% of the cart’s total, use this:

    function bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway() {
        $amount = WC()-&gt;cart-&gt;cart_contents_total;
    
        $chosen_gateway = WC()-&gt;session-&gt;get( 'chosen_payment_method' );
         if ( $chosen_gateway == 'paypal' ) {
          WC()-&gt;cart-&gt;add_fee( 'עמלת PayPal', $amount * 0.05 );
       }
    }
    
    1. Thanks

  10. Hello Rodolfo,

    Thank you very much for your outstanding work.

    I use your code, but I would need to exclude the charge on some products, example :

    – Product A: $20
    – Product B: $35
    – Product C: $40

    Total: $95

    I would like to exclude product A in the fee calculation, so I would like the fee to apply only on product B and C, i.e. on $75 and not $95.

    Is this possible?

    I use a translator, sorry if I am misunderstood.

    Thank you very much and good to you.

    1. Hi Nico, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  11. really thank you for sharing knowledge

  13. Any idea where I can find the right ID from other gateways to fill in this part of the code?
    if ( $chosen_gateway == ‘paypal’ ) {

    1. Already find out by looking into the Chrome inspector. Other question, how can I add the fee to the second payment method?
      Thanks for the help.

      1. Exactly, there was a helpful screenshot here: https://www.businessbloomer.com/disable-payment-gateway-specific-country-woocommerce/

        For the second method, just add another “if { }” statement to the same function

        1. Hello Rodolfo,

          Can your explain where I have to add the “if { }” statement in the code of part 1? I just added it (see code below) to the code but then I got an error.

              1. What error do you get? There is a missing “}” to close the function for example

  14. Thanks !!

    1. Welcome!

  15. Hi Rodolfo,

    Do you have a solution as follows:

    Add a gateway fee (percentage) for a specific gateway (credit card) for a specific user role (wholesaler)?

    Regards,

    Michael

    1. This is what I need. Did you find a solution Michael?

  16. Thanks for the snippet and this awesome site.

    I’m experiencing something weird though… your code works, but I’m using it inside a payment gateway class and when I try to use it inside the payment gateway class it shows while the cart updates and after the site finishes loading it is removed!

    I need to do it there because i’m getting the fee from the plugins settings :/

     
    // constructor function
    // ...
    // Set custom fees
    		add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees', array( $this, 'pagalo_add_fee' ) );
    }
    
    /**
    	 * Adds the fee based on selected cuotas.
    	 */
    	public function pagalo_add_fee() {
    
    		WC()->cart->add_fee( 'Fee2', 53 );
    
    		return; 
    	}
    
    
    1. Hi Hounw, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  17. Hi,

    The snippet works, but I am wondering if it’s possible to make the fees VAT-taxable.
    We enter our prices including VAT.

    Thanks.

    Best regards,
    Jonas

    1. Hi Jonas, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  18. Hello, Thank you for sharing the code!

    It works fine for me BUT I didn’t receive any payment on paypal. (that’s no good 🙂 ) I checked the logs, nothing went through and It didn’t give me any hint on why.

    I’m suspecting that’s because of the Terms.

    Your post specifically says adding checkout fees is currently against their Terms of Service. And I’m sure you’re right, however after spending a long time reading those terms, I cannot find anything on this topic. Would you be able to share a link/source from paypal? Their support is un-reachable (du to the current covid19 situation).

    Hope this message will reach you!

    1. No, the surcharge won’t stop your website from functioning, so you’ve got another problem. It could be anything. To troubleshoot, disable all plugins but WooCommerce and also switch temporarily to “2020” theme (load the snippet there in functions.php) – does it work? If yes, you have a problem with your current theme or one of the plugins.

      For the PayPal User Agreement, you find it here: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full, and it says:

      You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions.

  19. Hello,

    Doesn’t work on Woocommerce 4.0 (for all payments) – nothing shows.

    1. Sorry, I just tried snippet #1 and it works perfectly

      1. Still works perfectly with 4.7+. Probably the commenter has some plugin active, which interferes. This can be virtually ANYTHING – even if you dont use it, and its just active, plugins can and WILL garble up your system :-/

        Had that happening to me with a custom shipping plugin (not written by me, but a colleague) and a “premium” plugin for adding additional custom fields to the product. It was just active, no custom fields added or anything, but was upsetting / jumbling up the shipping calculation all the time. Even worse, it did take us 2 weeks until we got to the point to figure this out (why would a plugin, that is not in use AT ALL, but active, do anything to that calculation process ..? yeah well, now we know).

        cu, w0lf.

  20. Hello Rodolfo,
    Thanks for sharing this great post. I have a problem about this script.
    Checkout does not update. I tried for cod payment method. If customers complete checkout with cod payment method, they can see extra fee on order mail. But it doesn’t update checkout on payment method changes.
    I have a code in fucntions.php as below
    function child_enqueue_styles() {
    wp_dequeue_script( ‘wc-checkout’ );
    }
    add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘child_enqueue_styles’, 1000 );
    Probably this code prevents update. Am I right ? But I have to use this code. Can you suggest any other way ?

    1. If you disable that code, does it work? If yes, then you must re-enable it.

  21. Hello

    I am looking for Fixed Amount + Percentage Of Total for PayPal fee

    Do you have that code?

    Waiting for reply

    1. Hi Fakhrul, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  22. Hello there, Rodolfo,

    thank you for your hard work throughout your blog. It has helped me many times, so kudos!

    I wanted to ask – does this solution support multiple currencies? As I have implemented it (both with your code snippet and before that with plugin) and I am getting the same currency for both CZK and EUR currencies, which is indeed a problem. 🙂

    I am using https://cs.wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-currency-switcher/ if that makes any difference – should be fine multi-currency plugin.

    Thank you very much in advance and keep up the splendid work!
    Mirek

    1. Hi Mirek, you would need to modify the snippet in order to change the “amount” based on currency conversion. So, yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

      1. Hello there, Rodolfo, I totally understand (and as a freelancer, too, I agree), but my client has closed his budget on this project. So I will have to figure this out (should not be that hard) myself. However, thank you for your answer and awesome blog!

        1. No problem!

  23. Hi,

    Does this PHP Snippet #2 work for Cash on Delivery option at the latest version of WooCommerce (3.8.0)?

    Thank you in advance!

    1. It should, yes. Let me know

  24. Thank you so much found exactly what I was looking for.

    Thank you so much again

    1. Great!

  25. Howdy Rodolfo.

    Thanks for all of your amazing work with your site – just brilliant.

    It would appear that with the latest update of WooCommerce and perhaps my Square plugin, that this is no longer working – I did have a percentage fee only for credit card payments with Square previously, but since the updates, they no longer appear on the site.

    Code was and still is in the child theme functions php file, so I’m not sure what has occurred.

    Cheers,
    Phil.

    1. Snippet updated just today – give it a go

  26. Hi Rodolfo,

    Thank you for your Snippet.

    Since the update Woocommerce 3.7 the snippet no longer works. The cart isn’t updated if I choose another payment gateway. (Error : Can’t find variable: jQuery)

    Regards.

    1. Hey Connor, thanks for your comment! I just tested this again with Storefront theme and it works perfectly. Maybe your theme (or another plugin) is messing/conflicting with my snippet?

      To troubleshoot, disable all plugins but WooCommerce and also switch temporarily to “Twentyseventeen” theme (load the snippet there in functions.php) – does it work? If yes, you have a problem with your current theme or one of the plugins.

      Hope this helps!

  27. This is fantastic. The only thing I can’t figure out is what to I set the “Chosen_Gateway” to if I want to apply a fee when using Square. Can you help?

    1. Hello Matthew, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  28. Nice post, but how can i add a fix feed only if the total cart amount is under 50 euros?

  29. Hi,

    Great snippet!
    How can i add the ‘fee’ outcome on the invoice?

    Thanks in advance.

  30. Even though not documented at https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/add-a-surcharge-to-cart-and-checkout-uses-fees-api/ it turns out WooCommerce passes the cart into the woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees function as a parameter. Hence, you could do something like this:

    function add_checkout_fee_for_paypal($cart)
    {
        global $woocommerce;
    
        if (is_admin() &amp;&amp; !defined('DOING_AJAX')) {
            return;
        }
    
        $chosen_gateway = $woocommerce-&gt;session-&gt;chosen_payment_method;
    
        // it's either 'paypal' or 'ppec_paypal' for PayPal Express Checkout
        if (strpos($chosen_gateway, 'paypal') !== false) {
            $percentage = 0.029;
            $surcharge = (($cart-&gt;cart_contents_total + $cart-&gt;shipping_total) * $percentage) + 0.30;
            // 'Fee' is the GUI label
            $cart-&gt;add_fee(__('Fee', 'woocommerce'), $surcharge);
        }
    }
    
    1. Nice!

    2. This worked great after changing the HTML codes (& and >) to the appropriate symbols! Thanks!

  31. For the PHP Snippet #1, how can I make it optional? I mean the customer can choose to tick a checkbox to add on the additional fee.

  32. Hi,

    I have added the above snippet for COD method and it was working fine but the tax amount is not updating when the cart amount gets updated.

    For Example if my cart amount is 103 inclusive of 3% tax.

    Then when I add Rs 50 for COD method

    the cart amount goes to 153 but the tax amount is still Rs 3. Any solution for this?

  33. Hello,
    Thanks for the snippet… Wondering how I can make it that it charged per item?

    Any idea how…

    Cheers

    1. Hey Juanito, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is possible – unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R

  34. Hi, thanks a lot for your awesome work and snippets! Works fine on my test website, on which i’ve added the Coinbase plugin to let customers pay by crypto (and adding a handling fee of USD2 in that case). Any easy way to add the fee based on a % of the basket?

    Best

  35. Hi Rodolfo.
    I tried your snippet, but I encountered an issue.
    Say that you have two shipping method, free_shipping and local_pickup.
    If I choose COD payment method, ok your snippet add a fee correctly. But if I switch from free_shipping to local_pickup… well, there’s no way to update cart by removing unwanted additional fee.
    Do you think there is a way to clear it?

    1. Hey Alessandro – thanks so much for your comment! Well, this snippet applies a fee when you switch payment methods, not when you change shipping rates – it will need to be customized accordingly 🙂

  36. Hi Rodolfo,
    The second snippet for a specific payment gateway isn’t working. The cart isn’t updated if I choose another payment gateway. Is it because the payment gateways are after the cart?

    I found this and it works for me. The cart is updated when I choose a different payment gateway. Is this the right way to do it or…. ?

    function woocommerce_custom_fee( ) {
     
    	if ( ( is_admin() && ! defined( 'DOING_AJAX' ) ) || ! is_checkout() )
    		return;
     
    	$chosen_gateway = WC()->session->chosen_payment_method;
    	$fee = 2;
    
    	if ( $chosen_gateway == 'cheque' ) { //test with paypal method
    		WC()->cart->add_fee( 'Fee', $fee, false, '' );
    	}
    }
    add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees','woocommerce_custom_fee' );
     
    function cart_update_script() {
        if (is_checkout()) :
        ?>
        <script>
    		jQuery( function( $ ) {
     
    			// woocommerce_params is required to continue, ensure the object exists
    			if ( typeof woocommerce_params === 'undefined' ) {
    				return false;
    			}
     
    			$checkout_form = $( 'form.checkout' );
     
    			$checkout_form.on( 'change', 'input[name="payment_method"]', function() {
    					$checkout_form.trigger( 'update' );
    			});
     
     
    		});
        </script>
        <?php
        endif;
    }
    add_action( 'wp_footer', 'cart_update_script', 999 );
    

    Kind regards!

    1. Hey Mieke, thanks for your comment. You’re totally right, so I revised my snippet and from now on you should use the latest version 🙂

  37. Hello. When I select a certain country and choose COD where the fee is set, it is correctly showed in cart.
    Then, when I change a country for which isn’t available COD and so the default method (card payment) is automatically set, the fee for COD still stays in cart, although it isn’t calculated in total price when I try to pay. Don’t you know why? Thanks

    1. Hey Rad, thanks for your comment! You might need to “Ajaxify” the snippet in order to refresh the checkout fees when the country is selected. Unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R

  38. Sharing this with anyone who needs it.

    This is a customised code for those who are using PayPal Express Checkout.

    To know the gateway code, on checkout simply right on the payment gateway, click Inspect (Chrome) and
    just get whatever it is after the _method then edit: if ( $chosen_gateway == ‘CODE HERE’ )

    Hope this helps 🙂

    add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees', 'bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway' );
     
    function bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway() {
      
      global $woocommerce;
      
      $chosen_gateway = $woocommerce->session->chosen_payment_method;
       
      if ( $chosen_gateway == 'ppec_paypal' ) {
       
       
        $percentage = 0.05;
        $surcharge = ( $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_total + $woocommerce->cart->shipping_total ) * $percentage;    
      $woocommerce->cart->add_fee( 'PayPal Fee', $surcharge, true, '');
      
      }
      
    }
    
    
    1. Very nice, thanks a lot 🙂

      1. Very nice!

        I changed it slightly so that you can set it for a specific user role.

        Any idea how to set it for two users?

         
        // Assign Credit Card Gateway Percentage Fee
        
        add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees', 'bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway' );
          
        function bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway() {
        	if ( ! current_user_can('default_wholesaler'))
        	return;
          
          global $woocommerce;
          
          $chosen_gateway = $woocommerce->session->chosen_payment_method;
           
          if ( $chosen_gateway == 'cardgatecreditcard' ) {
              
            $percentage = 0.085;
            $surcharge = ( $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_total + $woocommerce->cart->shipping_total ) * $percentage;   
          $woocommerce->cart->add_fee( 'Credit Card Fee (8.5%)', $surcharge, true, '');
          
          }
          
        }
        
        1. Well done! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

    2. ppec_paypal is not wroking with PayPal Express Checkout for WooCommerce developed by wpgateways . Any Idea ?

  39. Hi Rodolfo, thank you so much for sharing great snippets with us. I have been following your blog for a while and perhaps cut-copy-paste some of them in my work 😛

    So I wrote a piece of code which adds a custom fee depending on the distance between seller’s & buyer’s locations. It was working great until woocommerce 3.1.2. Once I have update to 3.2.1 or 3.2.4, it’s no longer adding any fee.

    Here’s the code: (only if you have time)

    Just tell me if I did anything wrong or its the latest update that causes the code not working.
    Thank you very much for your time.

    1. Mahdy, thanks so much for your comment! Unfortunately this is custom troubleshooting work and I cannot help here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R

  40. Hi
    Great snippets, great work!
    I am trying to find a way to hide a shipping method in the cart, when a flat rate postcode has been input’d by the user.
    For a Guest shopper they are shown a flat rate shipping fee.
    I have set up postcodes in the flat rate method.
    Once the matching postcode is entered the new rate appears.
    However the original cheaper rate still shows and is selectable.
    It is this cheaper rate I need to remove.

    If its not possible to unset this other rate on postcode entry, could I add a fee and take that to the checkout?
    I hope this is not too confusing and that you may be able to point me in the right direction.
    Cheers
    Andy

    1. Andy, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is possible – but unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R

  41. Hello there,

    I cant seem to get the snippet working with a theme I’ve purchased. When I add the code into my functions.php it just kills the site – with a 500 error.

    Any chance I could give you access to a clone of my site and you could adjust it?

    1. Hello Ray! I just added the code to my test website and it doesn’t give error – try again 🙂 Unfortunately I can’t offer free support to blog readers, thanks for your understanding!

  42. hi there,
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR BLOG, it really helped me!
    I want to share a snippet to add a custom fee based on percentage. Check this out

     add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees', 'bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway' );
    
    
    function bbloomer_add_checkout_fee_for_gateway() {
     
      global $woocommerce;
     
      $chosen_gateway = $woocommerce->session->chosen_payment_method;
      
      if ( $chosen_gateway == 'paypal' ) {
      
      
     	$percentage = 0.02;
     	$surcharge = ( $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_total + $woocommerce->cart->shipping_total ) * $percentage;	
      $woocommerce->cart->add_fee( 'Commissioni', $surcharge, true, '');
     
      }
     
    } 
    1. Awesome, thank you so much Luca! Much appreciated 🙂

    2. Hello,
      Thank you very much for your code.

      I am looking to add the commission for payment with paypal.
      However, in paypal they charge fixed commission of 0.34 € + percentage.
      So, how can I add that fixed commission too?

      1. Nerea, adding extra commission for PayPal payments is against their terms.

    3. I would like to add 2 payment gateways here .. What would be sytanx ?

      $chosen_gateway == ‘PG1’ or ‘PG2’

      is not working .
      Pl help. thanks

  43. Hello,
    congratulations for the site !! I’ve had so many great ideas.
    I write because I am improving the site for my small farmhouse.
    After the guest has chosen the days of stay and goes in the cart I need to be added automatically the cost for final cleaning that is always fixed euro 50 for all apartments.
    Do you think I can use this here?
    Thank you

    1. Ciao Silvia, thanks so much for your comment! Of course you can use this snippet, and you can even rename the fee into “Pulizia Finale” 🙂 Let me know!

  44. Hi,

    This is a nice snippet. But it would be even nicer if there was a way to only add a fee to a selected payment.

    For example: payment type paypal is 5 dollar fee. But if you choose another payment types, there is no fee. I hope we will see such snippet from you. Thanks!

    Regards,
    Jake

    1. Hey Jake, thanks for your comment! I added a possible solution to the blog, only thing is that it doesn’t update if you switch payment but ony when you change something in the checkout fields 🙂 Let me know!
