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