How To Add a Surcharge by Delivery Country in WooCommerce

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to add a surcharge by delivery country in WooCommerce? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to add a surcharge by delivery country in WooCommerce.

Instructions:

All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees','woocommerce_custom_surcharge' );
function woocommerce_custom_surcharge() {
  global $woocommerce;
 
	if ( is_admin() && ! defined( 'DOING_AJAX' ) )
		return;

 	$county 	= array('US');
	$percentage 	= 0.01;

	if ( in_array( $woocommerce->customer->get_shipping_country(), $county ) ) :
		$surcharge = ( $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_total + $woocommerce->cart->shipping_total ) * $percentage;
		$woocommerce->cart->add_fee( 'Surcharge', $surcharge, true, '' );
	endif;
 
}

You can reverse this to exclude specific countries from the surcharge list by changing in_array to !in_array on line 11. You can change the $percentage variable on line 9 to adjust the surcharge percent.

Or, to apply a 1% surcharge to your cart for all transactions, use this code:

add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees','woocommerce_custom_surcharge' );
function woocommerce_custom_surcharge() {
  global $woocommerce;

	if ( is_admin() && ! defined( 'DOING_AJAX' ) )
		return;

	$percentage = 0.01;
	$surcharge = ( $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_total + $woocommerce->cart->shipping_total ) * $percentage;	
	$woocommerce->cart->add_fee( 'Surcharge', $surcharge, true, '' );

}
