Although you cannot directly add a handling fee to your orders, what you can do is:
- Add a handling fee via the shipping plugin. This will allow you to specify either a fixed amount ($) or a percentage (%)
Enter an amount, e.g. + or -2.50, or a percentage, e.g. + or -5%.
- Increase your product prices so that the handling fee is in included in your product prices
- Hide the handling fee/ markup inside of your shipping rates. You have the ability to increase, or decrease, the pricing for each service that you have selected. That way you can ensure that items that are complex to pack and send are covered.
Enter an amount, e.g. + or -2.50, or a percentage, e.g. + or -10% to the shipping services.
WHAT YOU MAY NEED TO CONSIDER ONCE YOU HAVE ADDED A HANDLING FEE OR A PRICE ADJUSTMENT.
