RBA - PAYMENTS BY CARD SURCHARGES

Merchants incur costs when they accept a payment from a customer. Different payment methods can have very different costs. Cards that provide significant rewards to consumers are typically more expensive for merchants. For example, some merchants face fees of around 3 per cent on American Express transactions, while transactions on some types of premium MasterCard and Visa cards can cost many merchants more than 2 per cent. Surcharging provides merchants with the ability to pass the cost of accepting more expensive payment methods back to the customers who use those methods.

When merchants have the right to apply a surcharge to more expensive payment methods they are able to provide price signals that encourage consumers to use less expensive payment methods. By helping to hold down payment costs, the right to surcharge helps to hold down the price of goods and services charged to all consumers.

VENUS ESCAPES CARD SURCHARGES

Due to the rising costs of electricity, consumables and produce, Venus Escapes can no longer absorb the credit card charges imposed on us by the Bank. Unfortunately we now have to pass these charges onto  "guests paying by card facilities". We encourage our guests to pay by CASH to avoid being charged the surcharges. Below are the card charges which will now apply:-

  • Visa Credit, Debit and Prepaid - 1.81%
  • Mastercard Credit, Debit and Prepaid - 2.0%
  • Eftpos and Eftpos Prepaid - 0.79%
