    Can a vendor charge a 2% credit card handling fee? 13th Oct 08 at 12:55 PM
    Hi all,

    Wondering if a vendor is legally allowed to charge a 2% handling fee for a purchase paid for by credit card. I know they incur fees for using credit cards, but this seems a bit steep to me. The alternative is to pay by cash but then I would lose the insurance that the credit card gives me. (I get 1% cash back on credit card so net "cost" of insurance would be 1%)

    Couldn't find anything on other threads so any help would be appreciated.
