Customers charged for credit card use

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, Texas - Retailers are now allowed to charge extra fees for credit card use.

As of Sunday, store owners in most states will be able to charge shoppers a surcharge of up to three percent of the bill for using a credit card.

But ten states are already banning the extra charge, including Texas and Oklahoma.

If retailers do impose the fee, they are required to notify customers at the store entrance and at the point of sale.
