Re: Is any body as frustrated as I am? No Powder to buy!
I actually prefer no credit cards both incoming and outgoing. As a merchant, I incur a portal fee of 3.5% everytime a customer orders with a credit card whereas a personal check has no portal fee and neither does cash.
On the outgo, I prefer sending a personal check or paying cash, in person.
A personal check today, is just like cash. It's a direct wire transfer.
I don't belie e I've ever done business with any retail establishment that don't take plastic, but again, I prefer personal check over CC on out of town purchases.
The sigma about a personal check is the ISF stigma but my commercial bank guarantees personal checks and if it is ISF, it costs me a flat 5 bucks which is usually less than the portal fee.
