Sage Pay have apparently rolled out a new feature that allows ecommerce stores to implement a surcharge if a customer pays by a credit card as opposed to a debit card in the checkout process

Has anyone managed to incorporate this new feature into a live One Step Shopping Cart yet ?
If so would appreciate if you can advise if there is anyone / company out there that can do this......if it works

Appreciate any advise / comments
Thank you

Below is the “gumpf” sent to me by Sage Pay. I would be really interested to see if there are any UK companies that have applied a credit card “surcharge” feature into the checkout stage of the online shopping cart.....

Applying Surcharges to Transactions
The ability to apply surcharges based on payment type selected will provide a
financial benefit to you by transferring the cost of these transactions to the
customer. This is a facility which is only available through using Protocol v3.00 or a
later version.
You will have the ability to pass surcharge values (fixed amount or percentage) for
all transactions except PayPal. For example, credit card = fixed fee of £2.00 or 2%.
Different surcharges can be set for each payment type/currency combination you
accept.
Please note it is your responsibility to ensure that any surcharges you set up
comply with laws within your country.
How does it work
1. You set up default surcharges for the payment types/currencies you wish to
apply them to in “My Sage Pay”.
2. Customers select the goods they wish to purchase from your website.
3. They then select the payment type to complete the transaction.
4. If this payment type/currency has a default surcharge applied this will be
displayed on the screen.
Alternatively you can send through surcharge values to override the default
in the SurchargeXML section of the Direct registration message (see
Appendix A1).

I am looking for a freelancer / company that would be able to incorporate this into my One Step CheckOut on mu shopping cart ...any suggestions / pointers ?

This information will also be displayed in the transaction report in My Sage Pay and reporting API.

Delivery address of repeat customers: When performing a repeat transaction the shipping address of a repeat customer will now appear automatically based on the last transaction. Shoppers will have the option of selecting the same address or entering a new one

Single click purchases for repeat customers will become much simpler and quicker to set up.
