Add option for donor to pay processing fees Merged

This would be very helpful for nonprofits to offer their donors the option to pay the processing fees.  Having to pay the fees out of the donation we receive through your service reduces the amount that the nonprofit has at its disposal to continue its mission.  Other donation sites such as Network for Good and JustGive have the ability for the donor to pay the fees.  Since we are required to use BBMS in order to use your products (in our case RENXT) it is very inconvenient that this option is not available.

    I agree that this should be an optional add-on. In a previous system we used, I used a fixed fee regardless of donation amount - $2.00 or $3.00, so no calculation was needed. We found 70-75% of donors added the $2.00. It was easy, straighforward, optional, and truly did offset a large percentage of our transaction fees, leaving more money to support our programs.
