Important things to know
- The surcharge fee must be disclosed to the cardholder prior to the completion of the transaction and the cardholder must be given an opportunity to cancel the transaction or use another method of payment.
- The surcharge Fee is included as part of the total amount of the transaction and not collected separately.
- Our solution prints the surcharge fee in the transaction currency on the receipt.
- if you apply a surcharge fee, then you may apply such a surcharge fee on a flat rate or percentage basis
- Surcharges must not exceed the costs of processing payment under RBA rules or you could face penalties from the ACCC. View the surcharge rules to learn more about what is considered an excessive surcharge.
