How good are these guys on getting out "in stock" products for next day delivery? Just wondering out loud.
Not really "eat the fee" it is rolled into the cost of business and is passed along to the consumer. Just like labor, utilities, insurance, rent etc.. Bucko's point is valid if their primary income is internet based. There is indeed a cost on their part to process checks and money orders that they are not recognizing. I too am reluctant to deal with sellers who pass that along to me as a penalty for using plastic. I am also turned off by internet sellers who charge a handling fee. Every single product they sell needs to be "handled" unless the bulk of their business comes from a brick and mortor store front. JMHOThey charge 3% more for credit card use because the credit card company charges them about 3% to process the transaction. Companies that don't don't charge 3% eat the fee.
Yeah "you gonna charge how much to ring it up and put it in the bag?"The items in a brick and mortor store front are handled also.
Figure what complaints there would be if a handling charge was instituted on thos etype of sales.
I know of very few companies that will charge the customer the 3% fee. My sister has her own buisness and would rather have people pay by credit card or check card rather than checks (that can bounce) or cash. It takes her more time to deposit checks and dealing with cash which takes time out of the day that she could be selling merchandise. I can deal more with a minimum purchase than to charge me extra when I am making it easier for them to do buisness by using a credit card. If a company has something I really want but they are going to pad the price with fees I would look somewhere else first and compare the price and the quality before I would buy.They charge 3% more for credit card use because the credit card company charges them about 3% to process the transaction. Companies that don't don't charge 3% eat the fee.
