Re: Finance figures are a bit scary

The first dealer I approached when I bought my recent car was entirely befuddled by the concept of paying cash: apparently, less than one purchase a month there is by a means other than credit.

Not only are they incentivised to sign people up to leasing/finance with a nice little kickback but the recent changes to interchange fees for card processing seem to have had the effect of pushing up the cost of accepting card payments.

If the car companies and the banks are already fleecing you, it seems entirely predictable that the tech companies want a piece of the action.
