  2. Select if you want the widget to be accessible for all staff members or only selected staff members
  3. Choose whether or not you want to Apply tax for the charges
  4. Enter Disables Groups - comma separated client group IDs that should not have gateway fees added
  5. Recalculate gateway fee on partial payments - when enabled module will adjust/recalculate fee on partial payments
  6. Don't fee subscribed invoices - when enabled module will not add fee to invoice containing items that are subscribed for fixed amount - ie through PayPal
  7. Show fee % on invoice item - when enabled and fee type is set to %, the module will add it to the to invoice item description

To further configure the module go to Extras → Plugins → Gateway Charges

Here you can setup custom fees for each gateway activated in your system. The fees can either be a percentage value, calculated from the total price or fixed amount. The fees will be added to the client invoice:

  • Percent is added to the invoice based on the total amount of the invoice
  • Amount is added to the invoice

For example:

Percent = 3%
Amount = $ 0.40 USD
Invoice total = $ 7.00 USD
Final Invoice Total = ( 7.00 * 3% ) + 0.40 = $ 7.61 USD
