Takeaway food service Just Eat has been slammed on social media for introducing a 50p service charge just days before a ban on credit card surcharges.
Just Eat been charging 50p extra for credit card transactions, but that will be banned from 13 January under a European Union directive.
Angry customer Daryl Ladd tweeted: “Your attempt to get around the charge ban means that your app will most likely be a menu-hosting platform now. Guess we’ll be calling the restaurants up directly #supportlocalbusiness.”
All customers must pay charge
Just Eat claimed the new system was fairer as now all customers would have pay the 50p fee, even if they were paying by cash.
