Ban on 'rip-off' card surcharges comes into force today



A ban on "rip-off" surcharges comes into force today in a move that the Government hopes will stop shoppers from being penalised if they're paying with a debit or credit card.
 
Economic Secretary to the Treasury John Glenn says it's a response to public frustration.
 
 
"I think for too long consumers have been fed up when they get this sneaky charge added to the end of a transaction be it online or anywhere... this ban will go for debit, credit cards and PayPal including Amex, so there is no uncertainty," he said.
