add a fee to woocommerce per product based on category using -'php,wordpress,wordpress-plugin,woocommerce'

add a fee to woocommerce per product based on category  using -'php,wordpress,wordpress-plugin,woocommerce'

I've been trying for a while now to get this working but I haven't find any solution that does exactly what we need, and I'm far from an expert in PHP so I'm a bit lost.

We use WooCommerce and WooTickets. The goal is to add a 5% fee for "Service Fee" only to products in the "Tickets" category (ID:34).

We have found this code snipper, that add a fixed cost based on a product category :

// Add Service Fee to Category
function woo_add_cart_fee() {

$category_ID = '23';
global $woocommerce;

foreach ($woocommerce->cart->cart_contents as $key => $values ) {
    // Get the terms, i.e. category list using the ID of the product
$terms = get_the_terms( $values['product_id'], 'product_cat' );
    // Because a product can have multiple categories, we need to iterate through the list of the products category for a match
    foreach ($terms as $term) {
        // 23 is the ID of the category for which we want to remove the payment gateway
        if($term->term_id == $category_ID){
         $excost = 6;
        $woocommerce->cart->add_fee('Service Fee', $excost, $taxable = false, $tax_class = '');
add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees', 'woo_add_cart_fee' );

The main problem with this solution is that it adds a fixed cost, whereas we need a percentage cost.

We also found this code snippet from WooThemes themselves :

 * Add a 1% surcharge to your cart / checkout
 * change the $percentage to set the surcharge to a value to suit
 * Uses the WooCommerce fees API
 * Add to theme functions.php
add_action( 'woocommerce_cart_calculate_fees','woocommerce_custom_surcharge' );
function woocommerce_custom_surcharge() {
  global $woocommerce;

    if ( is_admin() && ! defined( 'DOING_AJAX' ) )

    $percentage = 0.05;
    $surcharge = ( $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_total + $woocommerce->cart->shipping_total ) * $percentage;    
    $woocommerce->cart->add_fee( 'Service Fee', $surcharge, true, 'standard' );


But once again, there are a few problems with this solution...

1) The product category is not taken into consideration
2) It adds a fee based on the entire cart value, but it should only add a 5% fee to products in the "Tickets" product category, not the entire cart
