The boys went up the mountain to herd
and Ennis rarely ever spoke a word
until his tongue loosened up
after a whiskey-filled cup
then he told things Jack never before had heard

Banks take a commission from the business when their card is used. American Express apparently charge a higher commission which is why you see signs saying their cards are not accepted.  Banks here have guaranteed Paywave as, not needing a PIN (signatures are now only accepted if you are a tourist), they may be used before the owner realises their card is missing. Therefore the bank charges the business a higher commission. For that reason there is often a notice saying Paywave not permitted.

I've actually had the opposite happen.  I've gone to places where there are signs saying they don't accept credit cards, and to pay with cash.  They all had an ATM in the business, so you could withdrawal cash and pay your bill.

Thankfully,  I always carry cash in my pockets.

Me, too.

I don't know if it's still true, but I believe at one time businesses had to pay the credit card company for the "privilege" of accepting the company's cards, so a business, especially a small one, saved money by accepting only cash.
