WooCommerce PayPal Fee Plugin Complete Guide

Are you looking for the WooCommerce PayPal fee plugin to add a fee when the customer will checkout using PayPal?

Well, you have landed the right tutorial!

As we all know that WooCommerce doesn’t give us many features, and we need to install a plugin to add the required functionality. 

Similarly, if you want to charge a fee when customers purchase with PayPal to protect the margins, then you need to use a WooCommerce PayPal Fee plugin. 

And In today’s article, I’ll walk you through the step-by-step process to charge an additional fee when a customer completes the checkout using PayPal, with the help of the WooCommerce PayPal Fee plugin.

I’ll be using the Dynamic Pricing -Discount Rules plugin to create a rule to charge an additional fee when the PayPal payment method is selected. 

Here’s a quick sneak peek of the final results. 

So without further ado, let’s get started. 

Guide to WooCommerce PayPal Fee Plugin

Here I’ll show you the step-by-step process to charge an additional fee when a user purchases through PayPal. You can apply the rule to any payment methods available in your store.  

Note: I assume that you already have added the PayPal payment method to your store. If not, first, you need to add the PayPal payment method to your store to follow along with the tutorial.

So, follow the following steps to charge an additional fee if the user purchases through PayPal. 

1. Install and activate the Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules Plugin

Note: You can skip this step if you have already installed and activated the Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules plugin. 

To install the Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules plugin, you will need to install the Woosuite Core plugin and activate it with the help of a license key. We have created a Quick Start Guide for you to figure out how to install and activate the Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules plugin.

2. Navigate to Dynamic Pricing Rules 

Once you have installed and activated the plugin, navigate to Woosuite » Dynamic Pricing Rules from your WordPress dashboard.

3. Navigate to Checkout Fees Tab

Now, navigate to the Checkout Fees tab. From here, you can add fixed or percentage custom fees at the checkout. 

4. Add Pricing Group

Now click on the Add Pricing Group button to add fees at checkout.

5. Set Checkout Fee Label

Now in the Checkout Fee Label field, set the label to show on the checkout page

6. Set the Fee Type and Amount Based on the Total Cart

Now from the Fees Based on the dropdown, you’ll get 2 options. 

  • Cart Total
  • Cart Item

Select “Cart Total” from the dropdown so the users will be charged an additional fee based on the complete cart. 

6.1. Select the Type and Amount of the Fee

Now from the Type dropdown, select the Fixed Adjustment, and in the Amount field enter the fee amount you want to charge the users when they purchase the products using PayPal. 

7. Apply the Condition

Now we need to add the condition so that this fee will only be applied to the users who will purchase the products using the PayPal payment method. 

So make sure that from the “Checkout” field “Payment Method” is selected and from the “Condition” dropdown “IN” is selected. 

Now in the “Method” field, select the PayPal payment method so that the fee will only be charged by the users who will purchase the products using the PayPal payment method. 

8. Save Changes

Finally, click on the green Save Changes button at the top right corner of the screen to save the changes. 

Final Results

Now let’s test the rule. 

I added a product to my cart and visited the checkout page to test it. I have selected the payment method as the Direct Bank Transfer, and as you can see in the screenshot below, no fee is added. 

But now, when I selected the PayPal payment method, I was being charged an additional $5.
