Credit Card Surcharge Guidance
Starting February 11, 2024, there is new guidance for New York State businesses when charging
an additional fee to customers paying with a credit card. (NYS GBS § 518)

A business has the option of passing along the actual cost of credit card processing fees as
a surcharge to customers, but they must be transparent by displaying the highest total price
(excluding sales tax).
