    I have the same question. I bought an app for $1.49 and I also got charged an extra $.99, not sure why.

    From what I gather, these are Credit Card handling charges. I have been charged

    The $1 you are seeing may just be a 'holding' or 'set up' sort of thing that won't actually be taken out of your bank, I see that every time I buy an app and it never is really taken out.
    The 'handling' fee, in my experience, is for non-USD purchases. I have never seen it on a USD charge/app but have on foreign charges/apps. I could be way off here but, since it shows a separate charge in my bank account, I thought it was my bank and not Google or the market.

    The only time I've ever had an extra charge was when I bought apps from outside the US. I use Amex for US purchases and Visa for overseas. It might be a bank charge rather than a Google charge.

    True I never thought of that. Even so, Google, COULD put a message at checkout stating that Regional Bank Charges May Apply.
