[Gateways] Convenience Fees

Recommended Posts

is supper if blesta add option to allow the admin setup a Convenience fees for every gateway , that way the customer pay this fees .

this can be against some laws , but is not in all countries . a option to enable/disable will be great .

if you running a huge buseniss client based , this small fees can be a big obstacle for making some competitive prices .

the problematic , is that the fees is not unified in all gateways , so we can't make a price in consideration with this fees .

it's a really hard subject, because PayPal don't allow it, even though some companies bypass it calling it tax or something else, but you can loose your account. Some countries don't allow it. I suppose you could ask if the modules can allow it? so you can add code to apply it, but it shouldn't be in the core. Simply because of the laws and rules and what each gateway allows / refuses.

+1  and there are thousand payment gateway in the street or specific for given country, so not just paypal.

 

 

In my opinion, this feature is related to the way blesta could work as an option and not related to a given payment gateway

We can call the feea what ever we want this way will not be against the rules like in PayPal

For exemple we can call it "Service Activation Fee" or "Payment Verification Fee" and it will be impossível to be against any rule ;)

Only if you are American.

Paypal Europe does allow them.

 

Not withstanding that charging a surcharge is usually more pain than it is worth.

Keep in mind that you also have to collect sales tax over any extra charges likes this, and if the invoice was generated already (e.g. when it is a renewal invoice, and you didn't know the payment method when that was created), you may have to write out a separate second invoice just for the charges, as you are not allowed to change any existing invoice...

https://dev.blesta.com/browse/CORE-2305 Does this work? The idea is to have a discount or a fee associate with each. So you could charge an extra 3% for PayPal, or charge 20% less with Bitpay for example.

this another story, the task talk about disount, we are here talking about adding some fee to the invoice .
