Common Questions About
No Fee Credit Card Processing
Surcharges are fees that a retailer adds to the cost of a purchase when a customer uses a charge/credit card. A surcharge is a percentage of the value of the sale. For example, if a cardholder spends $100 on their credit card for lawn maintenance, the merchant would add a surcharge of 3% to the total charging them $103 for the purchase.
Surcharging credit cards is legal in most states in the United States, but not all. The legality of surcharging varies by state and is subject to regulatory restrictions and requirements.
