    Well done mse on getting credit card charges removed from merchants charging, guess what they now charge everyone that orders for the pleasure instead no matter the method.


    Just eat
    hungry house
    Any take away powered by touch to success


    They have also just changed the wording to service charge.

    Don't put your trust into an Experian score - it is not a number any bank will ever use & it is generally a waste of money to purchase it. They are also selling you insurance you dont need.

    It's nice that everyone can now have a go at paying the credit card costs, even if they don't use credit cards.

    Very egalitarian.

    It is the EU that banned card charges.

    Retailers and service providers are still permitted to charge an admin fee.

    No, but they now can't discriminate between payment types, so everyone has to share the cost.

    not really sharing if charging the same amount they used to credit card customers.

    Agreed, the actual cost will probably come in less.

    But of course, now that the card charge is removed, they will quite reasonably expect card usage to increase, so are probably playing it safe.

    Yep, it's taken away my choice as a consumer to get a lower price for cash/bank transfer. It's taken away my choice as a seller to offer a lower price for cash/bank transfer.

    An EU reg, but I'm sure the government won't be eager to repeal it once it's transferred into UK law after Brexit.

    Still, I have faith in wheeler-dealers to get around these regs. Legally, of course.
