    And how much do the banks charge per transaction?

    Credit Card Transaction Fees Rising for Canadian Small Business



    Looking at the list you'll see, for example, that the transaction fee charged a merchant when a customer uses a regular MasterCard is 1.75 percent, but if a customer uses a MasterCard Premium High Spend card, the transaction fee is 2.71 percent. Some MasterCards in the World/World Elite category carry even higher transaction fees.

    To a small business that processed $100,000 worth of credit card transactions each month, the .96 percentage difference charged for premium card transactions would cost an additional $960 a month, an extra $11,520 per year.

    Two or three cents on the dollar is not going to equal a loss on a transaction. That's what the stores want you to believe though.

    Dont eat at Chick-Filla because of Gay rights. Dont shop at hobby lobby over gay rights issues. Dont shop at Walmart for obvious reasons. Dont buy nikes because of sweat shop labor.

    My heart bleeds for them. Because they didn't make enough profit on the goods I already bought. They had to **** me in the ass too.

    I like Chick Fil a. They had the balls to stand up for their beliefs. Rare in todays PC world. Same with Hobby Lobby.

    So the store should eat the money to attract YOU? A loss is a loss no matter how you cut it. Take a business class.

    It might help to cut back on the hallucinogens, then.

    I thought I saw prairie dogs in a thread about gun control the other day, but it was just some lingering effects from the window pane.
