Gateway Fees Setup
Gateway Fees allows you to charge customers additional fees depending on the payment method used to complete a purchase. Alternatively, you can also use this extension to give discounts for using certain gateways.
After plugin installation you can go to Downloads → Settings → Payment Gateways.
At the bottom of the page is an area to set up a label and either a flat fee or a percentage fee for each Gateway you have enabled.
Once you have a gateway fee set up, it automatically takes effect on the front end. Below is an example of a Stripe fee of 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction on a $100.00 purchase.
Applying a discount
Add the minus sign to any fee in order to apply a discount. For example, you might want to provide a 3% discount for using Check Payment Gateway. To do so, input -3 in the "Percent fee for Check Payment" field.
Note: Gateway Fees calculations can be very confusing. Please read this section carefully and do experiments on your own calculations.
Something important to keep in mind is that this extension is not intended to simply add a fee to the transaction, but rather take the fees charged by the gateway and pass them on to the customer.

I want to give a discount for using certain gateways, is that possible?
Yes! Use a negative fee to provide a discount. For example, -2.9 for a 2.9% discount.
