There has been a clause in merchant agreements basically forever (since I started taking plastic anyway) that forbid the imposition of surcharge for the cost of credit card processing.

My REGULAR price to paint your Sportster gas tank is $4000 if you pay by CC or check, but I'm running a special in the month of August and will charge you $175.00 + materials if you pay cash.
