Is it legal to put a transaction charge on a cash sale?
I went to the local theatre to buy a ticket for an evening performance, and pay with cash. I was informed that there was a "transaction charge" of £2 payable on top of the price of the ticket. I remonstrated with the cashier, but was refused the ticket unless I paid the extra. Since I wanted very much to see the show, I had no choice but to pay up. Is this actually legal???Report
