It has only been three years or so since places like McDonald’s started taking credit cards. These small places will eventually too.
Basically a business will still love you if you use a credit card for a $10 purchase. But it’s a real consideration for them to start accepting it for a $3 purchase, due to the fees. For Starbucks it’s a joke, but not for small places!]]>
If the business accepts credit / debit cards then the business pays mastercard or whoever $.25 a transaction fee. If the business forces the customer to use the on premises ATM machine, then the business gains a cut of the ATM fee. Then, in addition you the customer gets hit again from your bank for using an out-of-network ATM. So as you can see, the deli ATM is in everone’s best interest but yours.]]>
The kum kau no acceptance after 10 pm also sucks big time. I just go to Sapolo and order. Same food, all plastic welcome]]>
