We’d like to able to add a surcharge in case some basic requirement (minimum order based on number of items in your cart) is not met. For example, let’s say you charge a service fee if people order less than five items to increase per orders sales.

I think this is do-able already using the discount rules which you can apply to a shopping cart, but you have to hack the code and allow negative numbers to be entered on the control panel. Once you have the negative number in there, you will still need to adjust the template, for example to display “Surcharge” instead of “Discount”, etc..

So, since this is already in the system, maybe enable it without the hacking? wink

Instructions how to do add^H^H^hack it are here:

There is a thread on the German forum as well where someone requested this feature:

Thoughts?

Another vote for this! 

Additionally, we would really like to be able to set catalog price rules based on Qty in inventory.  This got buried in the post somewhere but is an important parameter to consider when generating price rules.

One more vote from me as well.

We need to be able to add a surcharge if the total order value exceeds a certain amount. This is to cover enhanced postal insurance.

Why isn’t this by default in Magento?? It should have this feature and is simple to implement.
Just change of the code for the rules.
I now tried the hack and that works fine for me. next I have to try to change the text in the cart and invoice etc to change to Surcharge instead of discount.
Also think each price rule has to be specified in the totals with the description made in Admin. also specify weather the price rule in including or excluding tax and/or map to a tax rate.

Updated for Typo

we need this feature, too. especially to add a surcharge for cooled shipping. a rule over the products SKU would be nice… One surcharge per order, not per product.

Another vote. Would love to charge extra for certain payment methods, just like how the big airlines do these days.

If anyone needs a solution to this before Magento release one it might be worth contacting Karen (aka birches) who made the AuctionMaid MatrixRate shipping module. We needed to add a surcharge for enhanced delivery insurance and Karen programmed a solution for us. There are plans to release this as a module at some stage.

A surcharge module depending on payment method, as it already exists for most of all other shopping carts would be very nice.
