Commentaire / Comment
Telus just announced that their 2nd quarter profit was up 45%, to $498M up from $344M (more than $600 million annualized!) CEO Darren Entwistle commented "The focus of this organization is leveraging the strength of our network performance." So they admit that their oligopolistic strength allows them to increase customers costs and their profits. Do not allow this credit card processing fee request profit grab, or what would be to stop them from applying for another fee to cover more of their operating costs? For example, if customers pay by direct deposit instead of credit card, then why couldn't Telus ask for a fee to cover the costs of their Accounts Recievable staff, who reconcile payments through their bank accounts?
