Charging a service charge by % of the sale?

I would like to add a service charge according to the % of a sale but only by specific sales.

Example: Customer A has a bill of $100, if they meet a certain criteria I would like to add a 3% charge to total sale which would add $3. But Customer B does not get a service charge, so I want to be able to manually add the charge where is applicable?

    Just tested this on my account and it worked perfectly except that there would also be tax added to this, although there might be a workaround you could find. Go to settings and then open discounts, title the discount, select percent for the type, then enter -3%. The trick is that the discounts feature actually allows negative percents and dollar amounts which would then become additional charges, this would be perfect for stores that wanted to have a percent charge for something like returns as a restocking fee.

    This works but if you do it this way the receipt says Discount: "name of fee" and the amount. Is there a way to NOT have it say Discount when using it to add fees?
