When store owners try to include those fees in the product price, they can worsen customers’ experience and make them lose trust.

Benefits of the Extra Fee extension
Improve customer experience
Put yourself in the customer’s position, and think about how they might feel when the total payment exceeds the product price without any further explanation. It is annoying when you cannot track how fees are calculated and select only services you need.
Cover compulsory charges
In certain countries, taxes or other fees are compulsory due to particular regulations. Therefore, charging customers those fees automatically is essential. Moreover, handling big orders or fragile or luxury items can take more effort, hence it is normal to charge extra for higher security. By taking these actions, you can avoid increasing product prices just to cover costs.
Boost revenues through additional services
Imagine this as a way to cross-sell and even upsell, because you can introduce other services effectively. For example, a customization offer, or a gift wrapping service could help you gain more revenue. At this point of the purchase journey, because of the convenience, customers tend to make quicker decisions, that is why asking for additional charges can be a good idea.
Unlimited fees with flexible rules
Instead of limited fixed fee options in the default Magento 2, now stores are able to create many rules for these extra fees. Things including how the fees are calculated (fixed amount for an item, fixed amount for the cart, or percentage of the cart total), and when to apply. The fees can be displayed in radio, checkbox, or select type. In case of various fee rules, priority levels can be set.
View extra fees anywhere
You can access the extra fee both in the frontend or backend with ease. It is possible for stores to display these details in the shopping cart or the checkout step. Besides that, important billing documents such as the invoice, order or shipment, credit memo also include this information. In the backend, admins can view this information via the order grid.
