6:36 pm on 30 April 2012

The Reserve Bank of Fiji is to take action over businesses that apply a surcharge to credit card users.

It says this practice is explicitly prohibited but has been happening for some time, prompting complaints to the Bank.

The Bank says it wants to maintain the no surcharge rule but first will hold public consultations on the issue.

It says all stakeholders who think surcharges are justifiable should make submissions.
