Surcharging is a way to recover revenue lost as a result of credit card processing fees by imposing a small % fee for accepting credit card payments. Surcharging credit transactions can be a critical step to reducing your business' overhead; however the rules and regulations surrounding surcharging are constantly evolving. For instance, the list of states that don't allow surcharging is currently limited to California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Oklahoma and Texas, however there are lawsuits in many of these states seeking to change this.
