PLEASE NOTE - There will be a 2% surcharge on card payments to cover the transaction cost
Is there some new law prohibiting these charges?
I am not complaining, just checking that you are aware.

The other option would be to simply remove those charges from the Prize fund, or remove card payment altogether.

Just researched it. You're right. I think the easiest thing for everyone is to remove it from the prize fund? Card payments are a lot easier for most people these days. Thoughts?
Keep the cash option open for us oldies who like to know where our hard earned goes.

Any info Phil? First i have seen of that!!
A law was introduced a few years ago to stop companies charging for using credit cards, not sure you have ever been allowed to charge for debit cards.

I remember years ago you used to get charged to use a CC on just eat, not sure on debit cards but if you selected cash there was no charge, their response to the law was to just charge a "Service Charge" to every order including paying cash on delivery, instead of a fee for using a card.

Sigh…..you’re a strange one Neil. You turn up with a bunch of roses in one hand and a pile of dog poo in the other.

Not one person is digging at you about your event. Everyone is fully supportive.

Only one person is constantly digging at UKPinfest.

Go figure!
