Why am I charged 3% for using my debit/credit card?

VISA, MasterCard, and other merchant credit service providers charge a fee for the convenience of using their credit services, much like how banks charge ATM user fees. The Township does not derive any revenue from the fee charged. Rather, it is retained by the service provider to offset the cost of providing the service for residents. While other merchants can factor such costs in the pricing of their products and services, your local government cannot.
