The CPACharge team is pleased to announce we’ve recently updated our surcharging functionality in response to user feedback.

Now, you can not only securely accept payments from anywhere, you can also apply a surcharge in compliance with payment industry regulations. These updates help us offer an improved user experience and enable us to better serve the payment processing needs of finance professionals.

CPACharge users will see the following updates on their payment pages and when initiating a new charge:

  • Surcharge amount clearly displayed as separate line item on invoices
  • Automatic removal of surcharge for debit card transactions
  • Detection of payment method to ensure surcharges are applied appropriately

This updated functionality helps simplify the process of compliant surcharging and makes it easier for CPACharge users to abide by the surcharge regulations set by the major card brands.

If you have any questions about these changes, our in-house team of Certified Payments Professionals are available to assist. Contact our support team here.

You can also get more information about surcharging, including usage rules, restrictions, and recommendations as well as legality by state on our blog. Read the article here.
