Adding Fees to WooCommerce with Conditional Logic

This is one of those extensions that has so much flexibility to you as a builder. Not only does it save a lot of time from extra customizations, but also makes it easy for you clients to continue to use it for their ever changing needs.

The WooCommerce Fee Manager Plugin: Adding Fees to WooCommerce with Conditional Logic

Once you have activated the the Fee Manager plugin, you can start setting up your first fee.

Fee Settings

There are some simple settings for each fee. You can add the fixed amount, and it can be positive or negative, the latter if you want to offer a discount. You will also make the fee taxable and choose the tax class for it.

Adding a Fee

This is where the conditional logic kicks in. There are several conditions that you can mix and match to get this to work perfectly for your needs. In other words, you can have a single condition or numerous ones. And each condition has its own options.

A Couple of Examples

You can imagine all the options you have for adding a fee. Let me show you a couple of them. (Note: for the demo, I did not set up the shipping or taxes.)

Country-specific

There may be an instance where an additional fee needs to be added to one or more specific country. It could be a set fee or a percentage. If you are familiar with landed cost, this might create that needed extra fee.  For the sake of this example, I am going to use Australia.

As you can see, if I select Greece as my country. no additional fee is added.

But if I had chosen Australia, a fee would have been added. Of course, you probably want to label it with something more descriptive than Added fee.

Fees for Purchases Below a Certain Amount

Another example might be a product that costs more to produce in smaller quantities. Instead of having a restricted amount of the number that can be ordered, you let them order but they need to pay an additional fee. And if you had a group of products, it could also be done using a product tag or category. In this case, I chose a single product. The Engraved sign that requires that the customer order 5 or more to avoidthe extra fee.

If we order eight signs, there is no fee.

But if we order only three, the fee appears and is added to the total.

A couple things to note in this example:

Since this product doesn’t require the information filled in at checkout like the previous example, the fee will be shown in the cart total and at checkout.

And if you wanted to break that down further, you could create a fee for one or two ordered signs at $35.

And another one for a $25 fee if three or four are ordered.

Restricting the Content

This is a great option as membership sites because are so popular now.
