The UK Cards Association supports Which? campaign to investigate excessive surcharging when you pay by plastic

11 February 2011

Melanie Johnson, Chair of The UK Cards Association, says:

"The UK Cards Association called for Government action to curb excessive surcharging for card payments ahead of the last election. It is high time customers were given a voice where the true cost of what they are buying is made clear to them. We are happy to support Which? when they launch their super-complaint as it is not good enough for some businesses to generate profit by imposing inflated surcharges when their actual card processing costs are substantially lower".
