Doesn't affect me, I have no minimum and don't charge the customer extra for card payments, but I didn't realize it would soon be illegal.

Yes, we have a minimum of £5 on the cards, which is not illegal

I wonder if it would be frowned upon if everything in my shop rises by £1, but then conveniently I give a £1 discount for paying with cash? :) you know it makes sense

It was introduced because large companies were charging excessively.
I think what hasn’t been considered is that with something like a holiday, the bank charges can easily be absorbed, but in a small shop where people try and put silly amounts like 20p on a card, if we absorb the costs of that we will lose money.
So we can raise prices across the board, set a minimum charge or go cash only.
Any of those will cause us to lose customers

I don't think raising your prices by say 2% will make any difference to your customers, or in fact lose you business.

would love to not take card payments, but dont think thats a realistic option today.
