Adding on to a credit card charge - hair salon
There is a discussion on another forum and I thought maybe someone here could shed some light. Some hair salons have recently stopped the practice of allowing customers to add money to the credit card charge for the purpose of including the tip to the stylist.
This part of the transaction was handled in varying ways. Some salons would hand you back the amount and have you put it in an envelope for the stylist. Other salons would just somehow pass it on to the stylist.
Has something changed with the credit card regs that would cause this? Some shops still do it.
