PoS Operators Hike Charges By 100 Per Cent As Naira Scarcity Persists

Operators of Point of Sale (PoS) have hiked their charges.

It was gathered that PoS operators increased their charges by 100 per cent for all transactions, following the scarcity of naira notes.

According to the PoS operators, the hike in charges is due to their inability to easily get cash from banks. They claim they were paying extra cost to be able to get cash to keep their business going.

They, however, feared that the 100 per cent hike could be a child’s play compared to what might happen should the situation persist.
