'Unfair' online shopping charges to be axed
The government has announced new regulations on credit card surcharges.
Under new plans, "excessive" card charges that online customers are often faced with will be ruled out by the end of 2012.
However, businesses will still be able to charge a small fee for using a credit or debit card.
Complaints from airline customers surrounding charges that cost more than the price of the ticket have spurred the government into making the significant decision.
Financial secretary to the Treasury Mark Hoban told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "It's important that consumers know up front what charges they pay.
"What we have announced today will give consumers the transparency they need."
