Debit and credit card surcharges

We do not add any debit or credit card charges for processing payments, in accordance with EU law.

The ban for these charges came into effect on 13 January 2018. It includes payment methods linked to your card, such as PayPal or Apple Pay. 

The change has come in as part of a law setting out new payment regulations. The regulations are based on an EU directive which will apply throughout the EU, and will continue to apply in the UK after Brexit.
