Can I pass credit card fees onto my customer?

If a customer pays an invoice using their credit card, you may want to know if you can pass the processing fee on to your customer. Read on for more details.

Credit card networks have specific rules which only allow certain merchants to charge a service fee (also called a surcharge) when a customer pays with a credit card. The eligibility rules for charging a service fee vary by network and location and may require specific action from you as a merchant to be allowed.

If you choose to charge a credit card service fee while using Wave Payments, you are responsible for ensuring that the fee you charge complies with merchant agreements and applicable laws.

For more information about your obligations as a merchant, consult Wave Payments Terms of Service for the United States or Wave Payments Terms of Service for Canada.
