the leading payment gateway and processor-agnostic software that enables
on-line merchants to surcharge, today announced the launch of SurchX
for Magento, a fully integrated credit card processing fee

of SurchX to Magento users, helping them turn customer interactions into
opportunities to improve margins.”
Magento customers and their Software Integration Partners can download
and install the SurchX extension in the Magento Marketplace.
