Just wanted to see if CSers were tired of some shops, and this applies not only to camera shops, but many others too.
Go to a shop. Ask price for item. Salesperson gives quote of $X.
Waah very happy with price. Get ready to pay via NETS or credit card
and salesperson say must charge X% extra for such purchases.
Is this fair?
I thot there were some regulation that shops cannot charge extra for NETS purchases.
I know some will say that its only fair for the retailers to charge the extra % cos they end up paying the extra charges to NETS and the banks. But for consumers like me, i find it damn irritating that we have to pay extra for trying to go cashless. Huh, seems like a stupid idea the govt started. Don't thing that is working right now.
Recent e.g. i wanted a notebook. went to shop in Funan and saw a Dell i liked. Very very interested in buying. but was told that price was cash only! Sigh. I just walked away.
Do shops expect customers to walk around carrying wads of cash? Kena robbed how? Ha ha!
