Card payment fees

A merchant fee of 0.54% is applied to all VISA and MasterCard transactions. This fee helps us recover the costs we’re charged by the banks.

Please note: this fee also applies to payWave, paypass and other 'tap and go' payment methods that use VISA or MasterCard credit functions.
