Credit Card Surcharges for Bill Payments in Australia

Credit Card Surcharges for Bill Payments in Australia

When a payment is made by Credit Card to pay a bill, the Credit Card provider makes a charge to cover their costs. This charge is sometimes built in to the basic price, or it can be added on to a normal price.
An example of this is that if a business wants to get $100 for an item or a service provided, it might need to charge $101, from which they receive $100 and the Credit Card provider keeps $1.

Some businesses prefer to add it in to the price, while others allow you the option to pay with another method, and save that extra cost.
