All of the mobile payment gateways (Square, PayPal Here, SumIt, Shopify POS etc etc) charge a flat percentage rate irrespective of card provider. Any independent trader using a bank furnished payment gateway that charges extra for Amex (and other cards) needs to look very carefully at their payment processing costs.I know of no independent trader that accepts amex, everyone is shy of their demands and charges.

About 10% of my sales are Amex. Many of those wouldn’t buy if we didn’t take Amex. Even if I had to pay a higher percentage fee I would; why would any sane business loose a sale.

On the bright side, at least if they do get away she'll be able to sort the inevitable STD at the same time.0A and her best mate (currently awaiting a cancer op) had daftly booked a week in Turkey through Thomas Crook. They are currently waiting on atoll/abta to source their new hol so they can have a week of sun before she undergoes the knife.
People do things like that because they don't know, and probably wouldn't believe how crooked fiat currencies are. They are trusting souls who believe what they are told. By bankers. And politicians. You've got to laugh.I only laughed because I heard that radio thing too and my first, immediate thought was 'You daft bastards'.
They took real money and actually on purpose turned it into Monopoly money. Why not just give them a ******* cheque each year? Why do people do things like that without checking the protection?
