I've found an elegant solution to this for our membership invoices based on a combination of the comments below and the existing "tax" functionality in Wild Apricot Personify.
First, on the common fields in contacts, create a radio button option where you can set a member's payment preference. In ours, the two choices are "Pay by Check" and "Pay By Credit Card and Pay 3% Service Fee". I've opted to make this an administrative only field, since we generally manage this for our members. But it could just as easily be required a field set by members themselves.
Next, under Finances -> Taxes. Make a tax called "Credit Card Fee" and set it to whatever percent you want. We use 3%.
After that, create an override rule further down the Taxes screen to apply the "Credit Card Fee" tax when a common field is set to "Pay By Credit Card and Pay 3% Service Fee."
Finally, at the bottom of the screen, choose when this tax applies. For us, we are applying it to Membership Invoices.
When finished the system will now apply the 3% credit card fee (tax) to membership invoices that are created when the contact has the "Pay By Credit Card and Pay 3% Service Fee" option checked on their contact profile.
This doesn't cover all scenarios mentioned in the comments below. Certainly having a system-wide checkbox to "Pass X% credit card fee to payor" would be awesome. But, This at least solved our problem with adding the fee to member invoices when they pay by credit card.
