Certain tokens displays a fee on Uniswap but not on Metamask?

Hi guys,
I'm relatively new to DeFi trading.

I noticed that certain tokens have a 4-5% fee displayed for Uniswap, but this fee does not reflect on Metamask for the same tokens [Refer to picture]

Is it actually more costly to trade these tokens on Uniswap? Or does Metamask simply not display these fees?

I appreciate the help and clarifications. Thank you!

    1. Never share your Secret Recovery Phrase with any site or person. Do not enter your Secret Recover Phrase into a pop-up window.
      Verify links are legitimate. Scammers often use these tactics.

    2. Beware of fake websites. The official website for Uniswap is https://uniswap.org/

    3. Beware of fake Twitter/X accounts. The official Twitter is https://twitter.com/Uniswap

    5. Uniswap Support will never DM you. We only handle support through support@uniswap.org and https://support.uniswap.org/hc/en-us/requests/new.
      Scammers use DMs to try and get access to your wallet.

    6. Do not click on suspicious links or files. This can lead to your device security being compromised.

    7. Do not “sync” or “validate” your wallet with any websites or forms. This is a scam. Never sync and share: QR Codes, Secret Recovery phrases, private keys, etc.

    8. Uniswap Labs has no plans for an airdrop, regardless of any information you may have seen elsewhere.

  2. Metamask route the swap to an aggregator of multiple dexes (including uniswap) and then add a fee on top. Eventually, looks into how much you pay vs how much u would receive on both sources.

    It is definitely more expensive to swap on Metamask; on the flip side, it is much more convenient to new users to do it straight from wallet UI.

  3. The token smart contract itself has a 4% buy/sell fee.

    You’ll get charged this fee regardless of which wallet or protocol you use to make the swap. UniSwap wallet’s UI is better than MetaMask’s in this case, as it’s showing the token contract fees as well.
