Due to the rising cost of credit card fees, it has become common practice for merchants to charge a Convenience Fee to customers electing to pay by credit card. These Convenience Fees are the charges your credit card company is charging the merchant to process your credit card. Merchants who absorb these fees are being faced with a choice of raising prices or passing this Convenience Fee on to the customer.
Beginning January 1, 2021, the Lafayette Jockey Lot will begin charging a 3.5% Convenience Fee to all Vendors choosing to pay by Credit Card. By charging this Convenience Fee to these individuals, the Lafayette Jockey Lot will be able to avoid a Booth Fee increase at this time.
