We have to charge it on photocopies sometimes or we would actually loose money.
If they’re charging 50p though I’d suggest they get a new provider!
My local convenience store charges £1 for cards, doesn’t matter if you spend £1 or £50 as the guy who runs it says the margins on the items is so low he can’t subsidise cards. There is no cash machine for around 10 minutes walk and it’s the only shop in the area.
My local takeaway also charges for anything under £10 but only charge 50p but they are in the town centre next to loads of cash machines.
At the end of the day, it’s my choice to use my card so I am happy to pay a fee for the convenience
I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
