Todays submission is a Shonky Bakery. They removed their EFTPOS and went cash only, while installing a private operated ATM having a $2.50 transaction fee.
Fury at bakery’s ‘dodgy’ rule
Customers at a rural Aussie bakery have been left outraged after the owner decided to put an ATM inside, with people slamming the “dodgy” practice.
The bakery, which is not named, made the decision to change to cash only payments and instead have an ATM in store for customer’s to use.
The only problem is that every transaction incurs a $2.50 fee, meaning customers are having to pay more.
A photo of the machine was uploaded to Reddit by user jigsaw153 with the caption: “Local country bakery removes eftpos and goes ‘cash only’. Places private ATM in the corner, every transaction incurs a $2.50 fee.”
The post quickly racked up over 14,000 upvotes, with users expressing their outrage at the blatant rip off.
“This looks like a business that doesn’t want business,” one person commented
“I refuse to spend money anywhere that is cash only. I never carry cash and won’t use an ATM so I can get a sausage roll and a coke,” another said.
Others slammed the practice as “dodgy”, with one pointing out it could also make them a target for thieves.
“Also makes them an easy target. Cash only in a small town means there’s probably cash on the premises over night,” they said.
