So Play by the rules. Charging a min-purchase amount for debit cards violates that.

Then don't accept cards. If you want to accept cards - you will play ball. Simple as that.

And the CC company dictates the rules for payment. If you are to have CC/debit card accepting equipment. Per your merchant agreement, you aren't to refuse a debit card for ANY purchase.

You are absolutely ridiculous.

You will accept payment in the form of debit per your merchant agreement, or I will come by, every day, and report you until you play ball.


I'm not asking for much, just merchants to play by the rules.

F that I will to make a point. If you want to participate in the CC/Debit taking business, you will play by the rules.

This is not up for debate. It's in Visa's merchant agreement in black & white lol.

If you have to eat a transaction fee, that is a business expense you should be willing/expecting to pay. Deceiving the customer and telling them they have to spend a limit of $10.00 is not right.

I understand the ones who lose out are small business owners, but shiit like this is what makes me have no problem going to Costco once a month and getting my shiit in bulk so I don't have to run to the bodega/convenience store to pay unit price + up-charge.

That being said, I always carry around at least $50 for small purchases. I feel like a dork when I use a card to pay for anything less than $10.00.
I agree, I never have cash on me. I hate change!

Nope. This isn't about the price of the water bottle. It's about them not following the rules.

Again, its the internet so I expect you guys to all play devils advocate but the bottom line, no matter how you justify it to yourself, Is clear.

If you are a merchant whom takes Visa. You are to accept debit card purchases without any minimum amount.


Coffee shop in the bottom of my office bldg has some $3 limit, and while its against the rules it doesn't bother me as my morning muffin & Tea = $3.19. If it was $2.19 I'd tell them I worked for Visa and to straighten up as well.










This place just loves to argue. If this was a "got a speeding ticket, halp guys" you would all be on the side of the written law. Not so with merchants lol
