Option to include credit card fee as part of payment

Is it possible to include a button that would give our customers the option to pay the credit card processing fee as part of their payment? This would need to be calculated based on the amount that they spend and appear as a separate button when they are checking out.

For example we accept donations, if someone were to donate $1000 is there a way to set it up so that they can also pay the credit card service fee. Some of our donors would be willing to pay the 3% fee if there was a button that appeared giving them the option. 

In this scenario If they did not select the button their payment would come through as is and we would pay the service fee on our end.

 

Additionally how much gross sales would be necessary to make upgrading service levels a better option versus the business plan. (cost of upgrading= less than the service fees)

There are a number of dedicated giving sites that can do this but it is not possible on Squarespace.

For US customers, the difference between a Business plan billed annually and Commerce Basic plan billed annually is $96 USD per year*. If you’re on an annual Business plan and sell more than $3,200 per year (around $266 per month), you pay more in Squarespace Commerce transaction fees than the difference between the plans, so may save by upgrading to Commerce Basic.

*Prices correct at time of writing.

which dedicated giving site is simple to integrate with Squarespace?

I recommend a quick internet search to find suitable solutions for your region as I'm not US based.
