In British Columbia, Canada there is an Environmental Handling Fee for electronics.
Its a fixed amount depending on the item purchased.
How can I utilise Magento to add the EHF to an order.
BTW, sales taxes (GST and PST) are added to the EHF.

Have you found a solution to this? I’m also looking at doing this.

Environmental Handling Fee - Desktop/Server $5.50
Environmental Handling Fee - Display 29” and smaller $9.00
Environmental Handling Fee - Display 30” and Larger $31.75
Environmental Handling Fee - Portable (notebook/tablet) computer $1.20
Environmental Handling Fee - Desktop Printer/FAX $6.50
Environmental Handling Fees - Computer Peripherals - Keyboards, mice orded or wireless keyboards & mice .90

We have to add these fee’s and also tax the fee’s.
Also this fee should only apply if the customer is from British Columbia.

Anyone have any clue on how to set this up?

Didn’t find a Magento solution for this, and not for the want of trying. Currently exploring WooCommerce, and the Product Bundles extension. This could offer a viable workaround.

There is a magento solution for this as I am working on the same issue. EHFs ( electronic handling fees ). These must be applied according to province shipped and product sold.
The way to do this with Magento 1.7.0.2. is FPTs (fixed product taxes).

Go to System>Config>Tax - at the bottom enable Fixed Product Tax. Choose other settings acording to your display preferences.
For more info see:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/configuration-sales-tax-fixed-product-taxes

1. You have to create an attribute after that to enable the FPTs.
Catalog>Attributes>Manage Attributes. Create a new attribute assign it an attribute code.
Then under: Catalog Input Type for Store Owner> choose Fixed Product Tax. This will eliminate alot options.
Go to Manage Label Options and set a Name for your fee. Save

2. Now go to Catalog>Attributes>Manage Attribute Sets...go to the set you want the eco fee to apply eg \"monitors\".  You should see in Unassigned Attributes - your new attribute. Add this to your Attributes Price category . Save

3. Now when you open / or create a new product under prices you will see Fixed Product Tax where you can assign to country and state/province.

Hope this helps someone...I am having a problem with the FPTs and paypal though. see my other post
