We now have the facility to accept all the major debit and credit cards (excluding American Express).

Any payments made by Debit card will be processed at no additional cost. However, Credit card purchases may be subject to a surcharge of up to 2%, depending on value. Why? Because 2% is the rate levied on companies by the banks. On smaller sums, this charge can be absorbed, but on large transactions it hurts! Please discuss – we can usually work something out.
