EE3 add a second surcharge and display the second surcharge

For EE3. I need the base price listed for the event (i.e. 72.95 for the adult ticket – to show on all event posts and then later show – port surcharge of $10.49 (taxable) plus the HST (tax) at 13%, ideally when they checkout.

I need to know PHP file(s) and the equation used to display base amount, surcharge, and total amount. Also, please advise if a custom function is recommended and where this can be done in EE3 (details would be great).

I need the base amount to keep showing on the initial event, upon registration, the surcharge, port fee of $10.495, then the surcharge of tax(as percentage- 13%) including the ticket plus port fee, then the total cost. The gateway needs to be sent the total cost. Help please. I need to do this in EE3 (not EE4) due the Moneris payment gateway being available here for Moneris Hosted Pay Page.

Hi there,

I’m afraid this can’t be done in Event Espresso 3. Its data structure for pricing doesn’t allow for additional line items like Event Espresso 4 allows.

One solution to this is you could use the Mijireh gateway which makes Moneris available for EE4.

Hi Josh.

Can you simply point me to the PHP files that deal with the total cost and surcharge? The reasons are:

> Mijireh does not provide a solution as I have requirement for Verified by VISA and Mastercard SecureCode. Mijireh confirmed this is not the solution.
> I need to be able to customize the EE3 as I don’t have the time or the experience to create a payment gateway for Moneris HPP and checked the developer documentation and I am not at the level.
> I do not have the budget available to pay $1000 for a customization of a payment gateway that realistically is normally outside EE3 is just a link but obviously requires communication and data exchange with EE3.
