Just want to find out from the readers… how many of you will get real pissed off when the merchant tell you that, hey we only receive credit card if the payment is above RM40 or RM50? What if at that point in time you only have RM30 or even less than that?? Or, you have the money but the money is meant for other purposes???
Would you spend the money and purchase what you needed or you will just walk away??
I encountered this when over the past weekends, and I was honestly really pissed. This though isn’t my first encounter, however, we have voiced out many times that this should be the merchant to voice out to the bank and not taking us the consumer for the ride. It shouldn’t be charging the consumer. Some merchant will impose a 2.5% if you use the credit card for payment. For example, buying hand phone, TV, camera, etc.
In fact, a few of these merchants could be easily remembered when they tell me such rules…
1. Sakae Sushi in Gurney Plaza;
2. Home’s Harmony in Gurney Plaza;
3. Xuan Xin Restaurant in Gurney Plaza and many others
I would wish all the consumers out there and stand up and tell these merchants, we do have our own CONSUMER RIGHTS!! AND DO NOT TAKE US FOR GRANTED!!
