Overview

Fooman Surcharge

Charge more or less based on payment method, credit card type and/or customer group or add a small order fee.

Extension Overview

Surcharges made easy
Pass on expensive payment provider fees to customers in an easy and transparent way, without increasing your product pricing. Alternatively, encourage customers to use cost effective payment options by offering a discount for these payment methods.

Flexible surcharge options
Surcharge according to a range of flexible criteria including payment method, customer type, product, country or region of order, and even shipping method.
Charge a small order fee or enforce a minimum order amount. Apply surcharges only to orders below or above a specified value.

Fine grained control over credit card surcharges
Impose a global credit card surcharge, a surcharge only for particular card types*, or different surcharges for different card types*.
* These targeted surcharges require your store to be running a payment solution where customers enter credit card details on your website (rather than an external payment solution).

Integrated surcharge display
Surcharges and a configurable surcharge description are automatically displayed in the following places:
• Checkout
• Print Order page
• My Account Order View page
• Customer sales emails generated by Magento
• Pdfs generated by Magento

Quick and easy to use
Easily add, manage and delete surcharges in minutes. Do it all from the Magento backend without technical knowledge.

Surcharge Types

Charge more or less based on:
• Payment method
• Credit card payments (card-specific surcharges are possible if customers enter credit card details directly on your website)
• Customer type
• Country or region of order (based on either billing or shipping address)
• Product
• Shipping method (add a surcharge for mandatory insurance or extra handling fees for certain shipping methods)

Plus:
• Enforce a minimum order amount by adding an extra fee to orders below a specified amount
• Charge a small order fee on orders below a specified amount
• Customer group filter option on all surcharge types (except product surcharge)
• Country filter for payment surcharges - surcharge customers only from specific countries, or surcharge everyone except customers from specific countries
• Order minimum/maximum filter for payment surcharges - apply surcharges only to orders below/above a specified value
• Surcharge can be a flat rate or a percentage fee (except product surcharges, which can be configured as a flat rate fee only)

Other Features

• Configurable surcharge description
• Surcharge details are automatically added to the checkout, Print Order page, Account Order View page, customer sales emails and pdfs generated by Magento
• Fine grained control over how surcharges are calculated - choose to include or exclude tax, shipping and discounts, or simply surcharge based on the grand total
• Choose where the surcharge is displayed in the checkout totals sort order
• Choose to display surcharges including tax, excluding tax, or both
• Choose which tax class applies to surcharges
• Set different surcharges on a per store basis (multi store capable)

Compatibility

What People are Saying about Fooman Surcharge

“Flexible extension and brilliant support. Of all the surcharge type extensions, this one seems to understand the complexities of Magento's payment system the best. And when I did run into problems, the support was prompt, friendly and highly effective. Highly recommended!”

- Neil, via the Fooman website

“This extension was great and easy to install (and delivered immediately)! Unfortunately I tried a similar extension from elsewhere with problems, and I finally gave up to give Fooman extension a try (have bought another Fooman extension before), and it works fine with: GoMage LightCheckout and PayPal (the other extension I tried had problems with total amount coming out wrong, but with this extension the order amount is the same as PayPal amount). Even support VAT on surcharge (option), and I now think I can use it for even other purposes that I first planned (many options)!”

- it24, via Magento Connect

“Excellent extension. Works a treat”

- Equin, via Magento Connect

“A truly great and useful extension! I would especially like to thank all the staff of Fooman for his professionalism, courtesy, availability and speed. Congratulations guys and keep up the great work! I really recommend everyone to try this extension (and all others produced by Fooman, let me say!)”

- F.L., via Magento Connect

“Hello, thumbs up for the fast and accurate support after buying this extension. Some particular adaptations had to be done for our shop, and were done in a couple of days, including a smile. Recommended... extension worth installing !”

- eenplus, via Magento Connect

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by FOOMAN

Fooman Surcharge 5 5 12 12
I have used the surcharge extension for over a year and I have to say that it is a fabulous extension. No gripes from me in terms of functionality. I did discover some bugs in the past year but Kristof was very responsive and was able to fix the problems pretty quickly. I highly recommend this module. BUT I need to make one BIG, important disclaimer. I just got notified by my bank that it is against my user agreement with Visa and Mastercard to do a surcharge on purchases with those cards. No problems with Discover/AMEX, only Visa/Mastercard. We are about to get charged $5000 unless we stop using the surcharge for Visa/Mastercard purchases. Ouch. I am in Texas, USA where it is against the agreement. Other US states may not have the same restriction... and I have no idea about other countries. But I just wanted to warn everyone so you can do your own due diligence. This link might be old, but it has some good info. http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/723060.html. You will definitely want to contact your bank. And I wonder about Paypal? January 14, 2011
This extension s highly recommendable. It works great but i discovered some minor issues. Fooman is really very fast with his support ( even on a Sunday :-) )and tweaked surcharge especially for me. THUMBS UP May 24, 2010

Answer: 
This is possible if customers choose their credit card type directly on your website (rather than being transferred to a third party site to choose card type and enter payment details).

Answer: 
There is no global answer to this question. Please check your individual credit card contractual agreement, as it varies from country to country and from payment provider to payment provider. As an alternative, you can usually apply a discount to non credit card payments (eg. cash payment/bank transfer).

Answer: 
This is possible if your payment method can differentiate between credit cards and debit cards within the checkout process and makes this information available on Magento – ie. customers choose their card type directly on your website (rather than being transferred to a third party site to choose card type and enter payment details).

If your payment method cannot differentiate between this, then different surcharges for credit and debit cards cannot be applied.

Answer: 
Yes – Fooman Surcharge can also be used to apply discounts as well as surcharges. Just enter a negative amount during set up.

Answer: 
This is customisable to suit the requirements of your store. You can choose to apply surcharges/discounts to:
• Subtotal
• Subtotal plus shipping
• Subtotal plus shipping plus tax

You can also choose to exclude any discounted amount from the total used to calculate surcharges.

Answer: 
No. As MageClub One Step Checkout does not recalculate payment totals on change, this means that surcharges will not be displayed.

Answer: 
In specific circumstances, Fooman Surcharge and One Step Checkout are not compatible:

1) When using an onsite payment method and applying a surcharge based on credit card type (ie +3% for American Express) - due to the reduced number of checkout steps with One Step Checkout, there is a risk that this surcharge will not be displayed to the customer before the payment is made

2) When using a taxable surcharge and wanting to display a tax inclusive subtotal on checkout – due to One Step Checkout replacing the tax amount displayed during checkout which can cause errors

There are no further known incompatibilities between Fooman Surcharge and One Step Checkout.
