How To Add A Credit Card Fee

Beginning on January 27, 2013, retailers have an option to tack on a surcharge if a customer uses a credit card (limited to 1.5% to 4% of total purchase). Please note, that 10 states do not allow this fee. The 10 states are listed below. The fee doesn’t apply to debit card purchases.

  • California
  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • Florida
  • Kansas
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • New York
  • Oklahoma
  • Texas

To add this fee to a TOP invoice in Order Entry, you should first setup a Miscellaneous Code for credit card fees. Miscellaneous codes can be added from the O/E Options Menu. Below is an screen example for adding a miscellaneous code for credit card fees.
