WooCommerce Conditional Product Fees For Checkout Review

In this WooCommerce Conditional Product Fees For Checkout review, I’ll be taking a hands-on look at a plugin that lets you conditionally charge extra fees to shoppers at checkout based on what they have in their cart, their user role, and a lot more. The plugin name is a pretty good description of what this one does, right?

Metorik Woocommerce Reports

For example, you could charge an extra fee if a customer uses a certain payment gateway (like charging more for Bitcoin payments…if Bitcoin payments are still a thing).

In total, the plugin gives you more than 16 different conditions that you can use to charge extra fees at checkout.

You can use different operators like less than, greater than, and between to define how your rules work. For example, if the cart total is “less than $50”.

You can also add multiple conditions together so that the fee is only charged if all the conditions are met.

As for the actual fees, you can choose between flat fees or percentage fees, and you can also choose whether or not the fee amount is taxable.

  • No technical knowledge required.

Creating a New Product Fee

To create a new conditional product fee, you can go to the Add Product Fees tab in the plugin’s settings area.

At the top, you can fill out some basic configuration options like:

  • The fee title, which will be publicly visible to shoppers at checkout
  • Whether to make the fee fixed or percentage
  • Whether to apply the fee for the entire cart or based on quantity. If quantity, you can choose between the total cart quantity or the quantity of individual products
  • An optional start and end date if you want to automatically enable or disable the fee on specific dates
  • Whether the fee amount is taxable

Conditional Fee Rules

Once you’ve set up the basics, you can go down to the Conditional Fee Rule section to add the rules that will trigger the extra fee.

Again, you can use as many conditions as you want – you are by no means limited to a single rule. Here’s the full list of rules:

Location:

  • Country
  • State
  • Postal code
  • Zone

Product:

  • Product
  • Category
  • Tag

User:

  • Specific user
  • User role

Cart:

  • Cart total
  • Quantity
  • Coupon
  • Weight
  • Shipping class

Payment and shipping:

  • Payment gateway
  • Shipping method

Conditions

For each condition, you’ll also get some or all of the following operators:

  • Equal to
  • Not equal to
  • Less than
  • Less than or equal to
  • Greater than
  • Greater than or equal to

For example, you could charge an extra fee for a certain payment gateway but only if the shopper’s order is under a certain amount:

Advanced Fees Price Rules

The optional Advanced Fees Price Rules feature lets you get even more detailed with your rules. You can apply additional fees based on:

  • Product
  • Product category
  • Total quantity of items in cart
  • Product weight
  • Category weight
  • Total weight in cart

These fees stack on top of whatever fee you set in the base settings.

For example, you could set a basic fee based on the category a product is in and then charge an extra fee based on the specific product. You can also mix-and-match all of these different rules as needed:

Or, if you want to keep things simple, you can totally skip these rules in the first place.

Managing Conditional Product Fees

In addition to being able to automatically start/stop your extra fees by setting a start/end date, you can also manually manage all your fees from the Manage Product Fees area to enable or disable fees as needed:
