A surcharge is an extra checkout fee (percentage of the purchase total) that a supplier might add to a transaction when the buyer pays via a card. In the United States, such a practice was historically prohibited by the card networks, but, in January 2013, Mastercard and Visa began to allow it. American Express followed suit at the end of that year.
