Retail Trade: Fees and Charges

Volume 477: debated on Friday 20 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what the maximum amount is that (a) online retailers and (b) high street retailers may charge consumers for using a (i) credit and (ii) debit card to make purchases. (208438)

There is no prescribed maximum amount that retailers can charge consumers for using credit cards or debit cards to make purchases. However, under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, such charges, where material, must be transparent and not misleading.
