There isn't a set way that you can pass on the credit card fees to your customer within BoothBook.


This is something that is illegal in most locations that we operate in. In the areas that is is legal it tends to state that businesses are only able to pass on the fee that is charged by the gateway for using the credit card. As this differs by gateway and card used and the list of restrictions are ever changing in favour of the consumer we have decided not to build the functionality to protect our customer.


There is the ability to override the tax settings to include a fee, this would be done at your own risk.
