if gregg's can take a card

for a sausage roll

what's the gripe

They probably pay less in card processing fees than you. If you pay next to nothing then great, but if you’re paying 50p then you can’t really let someone put £1 on a card

please note

debit cards no charge

sorry cost of call for transaction

transactions are charged as bundles by the banks

i.e. mon tues wed 30 transactions 35p 

fri sat sun 14 transactions 35p

if you are being charged for each transaction change provider and bank

You pay your bank once, you pay your terminal gateway provider per transaction, that’s how they make their money, usually around 20p-50p per transaction,  not much when they’re spending £50, but when it’s a 20p key cap it’s costing you money when they use a card

I have no objections to going cashless as long as small business’ stop getting penalised. In the US they get grants to go cashless to subsidise the card charges. But for now, I’m going to keep saying no when I get asked if they can put a 20p key cap on American Express

Ive been hearing this since credit cards were invented.

Complete disaster.

Agreed. As long as there's self-employed people there'll be cash payments.

Remember when we were also once promised a "paperless office"? Then it became a requirement to start keeping additional hard-copy records (in secure storage, of course). "They" make the rules up as they go along.

We are now 65/70% cards the rest cash and it is moving more and more towards cards.

Yesterday i took £649.80 on cards and £72.50 cash.

some weeks we can take over £2500 in card payments and not even get £500 in cash.

Doesn’t look like a very friendly comment, or maybe I’m reading it wrong.

im sure he takes enough for a good living. If I had my own shop and took that much I’d have enough to pay someone else to do the work for me.
