Credit Card Fees

Recommended Posts

Have you ever when to a shop and negotiated a price on something only to have the merchant tell you that they are going to charge an extra 3% - 5% if you use a credit card?

 

This happened to me until one day I read that the merchants can not do this. It is against their contract with the credit card companies. People go into their shops sometimes because the take credit card and the increase in business should more than cover the extra fee they are charged.

 

If this happens to you tell them that you don't want to pay over the agreed price because you are going to charge it. If the merchant forces the issue ask them for a receipt that breaks out the extra charge for the credit card. Tell the merchant that you will take that receipt to the credit card company to verify that it is legal for them to charge the fee. They should back down.

Can be even higher in Taiwan - 7% or so. Reason: not only to cover the 2%-3% commission for the CC company, but because they'll have to declare it on their books for the tax man if it's a CC purchase, so they have to charge you the sales tax too :rolleyes:

 

Just think of it as a "cash discount" when you don't pay with the CC... can't begrudge them a few % profit if you've already negotiated a good price.

Have you read the forum rules?

Sitting here now in this bar for hours,

whilst strange men rent strange flowers,

I'll be picking up your petals in another few hours...

This is quite common in Asia in general. I've heard a number of times about this being against the terms of service with the credit card companies but this does not seem to deter them from doing it.

 

I've bought gold in Thailand a number of times using a credit card, and they don't blink an eye when asked to provide a detailed reciept with the additional charge for using a card.

 

Quite common in Japan for shops to have a sign for all to see indicating the extra charge for using a card.

 

Bought plan tickets in China one time thru the travel agent at the hotel. They wanted to charge me extra for using a card, but I could put it on my room bill for additional fee. Then I paid my room bill with a card, and no extra charge - go figure.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
