What is the credit card charge and are Rix Petroleum allowed to make this charge?

Rix accept payment by debit or credit card. Debit card payments are free however there is a small charge of 1.5% for credit card payments.

The credit card surcharge simply covers the additional costs incurred from the credit card issuers. We recommend payment by debit card to keep your cost to a minimum.

The Consumer Rights (Payment Surcharges) Regulations 2012 state that a trader must not charge consumers, in respect of the use of a given means of payment, fees that exceed the cost borne by the trader for the use of that means. Rix Petroleum are not charging more for using a credit card than the amount charged to us by our Merchant Services provider so are acting within this legislation.
