Wholesale operations under Bestway and Batleys have abolished credit card charges across all the group’s trading platforms.
There are now no charges for credit card transactions on its websites, its mobile app or at its 60 Bestway and Batleys depots in Britain.
Younus Sheikh, managing director of Bestway Wholesale says: “Retailers need to work off healthy margins in order to be successful and profitable.
“In many categories, they are coming under pressure from the multiples and discounters and although promotions and price-marked packs help them compete, the margins on these are less that on standard packs or single sales.
“By waving the charge for credit card sales not only are Bestway and Batleys helping customers manage their cash flow but we are also saving them up to 2% on the cost of goods.”
