At my store once we realized the scope of creditcard fees on a business that operates on transactions in the $8-$20 range, we raised all of our prices by 50 cents. This credit card non-sense should be passed on to the consumer so it is visible, it is ridiculous. Banks charge the business for taking their card from a customer, and then the banks turn around and charge the customer for interest on the debt they just accumulated. Total crap.
Big businesses create their own creditcards to bypass the fee, like Target's Visa Card that earns you 5% cash back, etc.. Small businesses end up both footing the bill and looking like jerks for having higher prices!

It does not require a majority to prevail,
but rather an irate, tireless minority keen
to set brush fires in peoples minds
