Does this app work with Shopify B2B?

Yes. It requires the Fees to be set to a physical product. After you have created a fee, navigate to Products in the Shopify admin and open the new fee product. Scroll down to the ‘Shipping’ section of the product page and check the ‘This is a physical product’ option, and save the product.

This will ensure the fee products will show in B2B customers checkouts.

How does this app work?

The Magical Product Fees app enables the addition of mandatory fees to products in the cart with an app embed block.

It creates fee products that are applied to products based on the conditions you define.

When a product is added to the cart, all matching fee products are added simultaneously using the Magical Mandatory Fees app embed block.

Can I control how fees are applied?

Yes. You can define conditions for fees that match them to other products based on a wide variety of criteria.

Fee conditions include:

  • All products
  • Specific collections
  • Specific products
  • Custom conditions (Product Type, Option Name, Option Value)
  • Rules for applying fees to every product, once per product, and once per cart.

What kind of fees can I add to my products?

You can add any type of fixed fee required for products in your online store.

Common use cases include:

  • Product Fees
  • Eco Fees
  • Handling Fees

Yes. A maximum of 50 fees can be added to the library in the app.

Can I charge fees based on customer shipping location?

Yes. However, location-based fees can only be charged while on the Growth Plan, which is currently limited to Shopify Plus merchants.

Can I charge fees based on the payment method used for an order? For example, can my fee be charged only if a credit card is used to pay for the order?

No. Fees are applied based on the products they are set to be applicable to and the set “Rules”, not the payment method in use.
