WooCommerce Cash On Delivery Plus Fee

Add fee to the Cash On Delivery payments


This is a WooCommerce plugin that adds new payment Cash On Delivery method with additional fees to your shop. The fees are calculated based on rules you set in WooCommerce admin panel. It can be the fee that the collector takes for the service, part of it, or your own.

I. From the Wordpress admin panel, go to WooCommerce and choose Settings

II. At the settings page, click on the Checkout tab, to go to the WooCommerce checkout settings

III. You will be presented with various settings for the checkout and the list table with the available payment gateways at the bottom of the page. Click on the Settings button next to the payment gateway with ID "codpf"

IV. Once at the Cash on Delivery Plus Fee page you have the following settings available:

1. Enable - You can Enable/Disable the method without deactivating the plugin

2. Title - Payment method description that the customer will see on your checkout

3. Description - Payment method description that the customer will see on your website

8. Default fee type - Default fee type will be used if none is specified in the Rates table

9. Include Shipping Fee - Include the shipping fee in the Cart Total used for the calculations of the fee

10. COD Plus Fee Rates - In this table for you must set the rules used for calculating the fee amount. The calculations are based on the amount that customer has in their checkout.  Each rule has these settings

- Total From: The minimum cart amount that the rule will be applied for

- Total To: The maximum cart amount that the rule will be applied for

- Fee: The fee amount that will be applied if the cart amount is valid for that rule

- Fee type: The fee type can be amount or a percent, if nothing specified, the Default fee type from setting 8 will be used

Example scenario:

You set the following rules and the currency in your shop is US Dollars ($)

- If the customer has bought product with value from $0 to $20, the fee is $2 (as the fee type is not specified, the system will use the default one, which is Amount in this example)

- The fee for cart amounts equal and bigger than $20 and less than $35 would be $3

- The fee for cart amounts equal and biggerthan $35 and less than $50 would be $5

- The cart amount range from $50 to $100, will calculate a percent, which in this case is 10. So if the customer have bought products for $70, the fee will be $7 (which is 10% of 70), cart amount for $80 is $8 fee, etc.

- If you set the Total To to 0 or leave it blank (as in the last rule of the example) the rule would be valid and will be applied for every cart amount, which is more than or equal to the Total From value of this rule.
