Paypal and credit card surcharges
automatically add custom / predefined surcharge to invoice when payment type is selected.
The payment type selection comes after the creation of the invoice so we won’t be able to implement that. However, this is currently support via inventory. You can enter a negative number in the Discount – Percent field on an an Inventory item (which you could call “Credit Card Surcharge”) and add this as an item to invoices. We’ll get some articles on this going in our Knowledge Base soon.
This is not working for us when we have a charge of 2.25 or 2.75 % its only whole numbers that calculate and in Australia the rules are pretty tight about overcharging. We have to manually enter the amount charged via our Credit card terminal

i agree...it needs to be setup so the surcharge is automatically charged...having to add a surcharge in the inventory is yet something else that everyone has to remember...and it can easily be forgotten about...so i had to add an automatic surcharge thru our merchant software but then when repairshopr prints the receipt its not the correct total...

Agree with Christopher Morris.
I currently have an invoicing program that has a switch to "add fee's to invoice" IF they decide to use PayPal or Stripe. RepairShopr, are you able to do this? Invoice2go does it.
We can't add fees on all the invoices assuming that they will pay using a credit card. Some transfer, and some cards cost more than others!

Are there any plans to automatically add the surcharge if credit card of pay pal is selected as a payment. All of my invoices are sent out to the clients before hand, so I dont know if they are going to pay via bank transfer or credit card.
You could add the following variable into the API Robert and use it as a percentage,
Optional Handling charges. This variable is not quantity-specific. The same handling cost applies, regardless of the number of items on the order.
Can not seem to get this to go , how exactly do we enter surcharge as inventory item thanks
