    Is there a way to add a 3% transaction fee to total amount before it is submitted to PayPal? I was trying to figure it out on your Payplal donation page.

    You can try using a Form Calculation widget as the final price with additional 3% on the transaction, you can then pass the value from the Form Calculation to your payment total field, here's the guide on that:

    Here's an example:

    1. Here's what I added in my form:

    -a text box named "Donate", this is where we will fetch the donation of the user.

    -a form calculation widget, we will get the donation value + 3%

    -I set up the payment method to fetch the value on the form calculation widget. You can follow the guide above.

    2. This is how I calculated the donation + 3% in the form calculation widget.

    3. In the payment wizard, I'll select the "Calculation" field to where to get the final amount.


    I hope that helps. Do let us know if you need more information on this.

    Thank you.
