hand holding sword aloft

With surcharges for credit and debit card payments being banned in the UK from 13th July 2018, lots of companies are considering introducing new fees or otherwise getting around the ban.

Meanwhile, some companies are using this as an opportunity to ‘do the right thing’ by their customers by simply absorbing the payment processing costs themselves.

Here are the customer-friendly companies we’ve heard about so far (do let us know in the comments if you know of others!)

  • FOODit — an online restaurant booking platform. In a way, FOODit compete with Just Eat who, in contrast, have faced a big backlash over their introduction of a 50p ‘service charge’ on all orders.
  • OK… there must be more… surely…?!
