I haven't really been following this NETS hike thing but will this hike be pushed to the consumers?

I remember all along there's already like a 0.5% fee for using NETS right? Following the increase to 1.5% will it be like the next time this will be what I'll be seeing on my receipt?

Item SGD100.00
GST7% SGD7.00
NETS1.5% SGD1.50
TOTAL SGD108.50

The only way to demonstrate your disgust is to always pay in cash or credit card or debit, if everyone does this, the banks will have to lower NETS fees in order to make it attractive....

Buy your big ticket items overseas... :D
Thats just what I've been doing, sometimes even after paying sales tax it still work out cheaper than buying from SG. At least I know the sales tax I pay there is going to good use, as opposed to paying GST here that goes to a bunch of world class overpaid robbers.
