Surcharge sometimes necessary: StarHub

Surcharge sometimes necessary: StarHub

We thank Madam Lucy Ng for her feedback ("Telcos' credit-card surcharge on phones"; Thursday).

For our customers' convenience, StarHub provides a wide range of payment choices at our retail outlets.

It is not our practice to collect credit-card surcharges from customers for any purchase.

We also strongly encourage our authorised dealers to do the same for customers.

Some of them have clarified that a credit-card surcharge is sometimes necessary to cover the transaction cost for standalone mobile devices.

This is explained to customers upfront before any purchase.
