codyc1515:sbiddle: The scary thing is the Commerce Commission investigating it. Remember their job isn't to be fair or impartial.
Just remember these are the people who set your broadband pricing in NZ due to regulated wholesale pricing that has fundamental flaws in the methodology, and who made credit card surcharges legal, while every other competition regulator in the world is trying to get rid of them.
Would you say that if the outcome is that it is anti-competitive that they are working in NZs best interests?
Slight topic diversion - I currently have a query in with the Commerce Commission about their stance on CC surcharges which are benefitting me as the consumer.
On a $1 Air New Zealand fare I pay a $3.50 credit card surcharge.
My question to the commission is what their thoughts are on a 350% credit card surcharge?
