Presumably they don't want to pay the merchant services fee for having the terminal along with the percentage cost per transaction. A short-sighted view.

Another TA of mine is the number of taxis who won't take credit cards. It's much easier for me to put the taxi on my work credit card rather than having to withdraw cash and then claim it back via expenses.

TA at myself for never sitting down even though I'm exhausted.

Run myself ragged so by the time I do, all I'm fit for is (maybe) an hour of TV and I'm asleep.

TA'd at me tonight.

Maybe the container says Aromat, but they've something else in there. I'd check for drugs or cash or diamonds, if I were you. It's the perfect hiding place, nobody in their right mind would think of keeping Aromat in the fridge, and nobody would dream of checking. If you find something interesting, I want my commission.

Comfy in bed & needing to go for a pee.

If I go now, it would not be worth getting back into bed for only a few minutes. Getting up at 7.

Gonna try & hold out.

The latter is easily fixed though, a simple surcharge could be applied to card purchases. The fiddling revenue possibility is less easy to fix, though...

True, but I see that there are now small terminals you can get that you link to you chosen bank account to take payments with. I'm not sure if these attract fees too but as the customer, I don't mind paying a small amount extra to cover this. Businesses should at least give people the option of doing so.
