Why Is There a Convenience Fee For Using a Credit/Debit Card?
All credit/debit card payments need to go through what is called a “merchant”. All merchants charge a fee. In the private sector, fees for purchases with credit and debit cards are passed along to the customer within the purchase price of items. In government, we are ethically unable to do this. In order for the merchant to collect their fees, there is a 2.95% (minimum $2.95) convenience fee for credit/debit cards and a $1 convenience fee for e-checks. There is an additional $0.95 charge for all payments submitted via the automated phone service.
