sometimes you see a sign in a grocery store or restaurant saying that credit cards, debit card, or both, are accepted only for purchases above a certain minimum e.g. $20.
questions for someone who has seen this from the business side of a store or restaurant (not asking about the cardholder side):
for debit card service (e.g. interac) - i understand the business gets charged per-transaction. is this correct? (then the fees for 10 purchases of $10 each would be 10 times the fee on one $100 purchase.)
for credit cards - i understand the business gets charged a percentage of the amount. is this correct? (then the fees for 10 purchases of $10 each would be the same as on one $100 purchase.)
thanks for any clarification you can provide.
