What is Surcharge and How to activate it for your AG Worldline Online Payments For WooCommerce

Surcharge is a WorldLine feature that allows the merchant to pass over the payment processing fees to the customer.

You will need to contact your account manager to set up the surcharges for your WorldLine account. This fee is typically added to the total amount that the customer pays for a product or service. Surcharging is often used by businesses as a way to offset the costs associated with accepting credit cards and other forms of electronic payment – In this instance, for our plugin, AG Worldline Online Payments For WooCommerce.
