1) does anyone know if SLS is a good place to repair my laptop (suspect fan died).
2) and do they charge extra for using credit card payments?
in Malaysia, is common for the merchants to charge 2% extra which is unjust and sneaky.
Yes for first 1. There are laptop repair shops in business for over 10 years ..
Subjective for 2. If you negotiate your price with low margin, some resellers will tell you there's a 3% surcharge, some have posted notice about the admin fee being charged by CC companies being transferred over to the customer, 1% for NETS ... some will say no credit card accepted for special deals, than get into needless arguments.
For NETS, most shops absorb the 1% fee, but 3% for items with pretty low margin ? No.
Especially when, say A branded router, selling for control price of 400$, with purchase cost being 350$, add 7% GST, You can guess how much margin there is ...
That's how much money there is, in selling branded computer equipment and accessories.
If you think the CC charge is sneaky, pay cash.
PS, Credit card and NETS merchants have to pay annual fee on top of the per transaction admin fee.
