Credit Card Surcharge
SYDNEY, Australia - January 31, 2008
Following the Reserve Bank reforms in 2006, Visa & MarsterCard have introduced new differentiated merchant rates for different transaction types. Charges now vary depending on whether the card: is present at the transaction; from an online/phone/fax order; a premium Gold/Platinum card; or a corporate/business card. Consequently, we have been advised that as of February 2008 these differentiated charges will now be passed on to us, the merchant, at higher rates. Rather than hide these increased charges into higher product prices or add further complexity at time of order, we are now forced to pass on a flat 2.0% credit card surcharge to ALL credit card transactions - this excludes debit cards. We will continue to monitor this matter and negotiate our rates with our bank and pass on any rate changes. We still allow customers to pay for orders by direct depositing money into our account at no additional charge.
