Card fees within the EU
- You buy tickets online and pay with your card. The seller is not allowed to add any additional fees for paying by card.
- You buy something and pay with your card in a store in a EU country. The store is not allowed to charge any extra fees for paying by card.
The ban on card fees does not apply to:
- business cards
- so-called tripartite networks (cards that are both issued and redeemed by the same company), such as American Express or Diners Club
- non-card based payment solutions such as Swish.
For these exceptions, it is up to each member state to prohibit or limit card fees.
