    Reserve Bank wants to unveil South Africa-only bank card to take on Visa and Mastercard

    Oh dear. You do know as a merchant I can chose between visa/mc and Amex/diners. Plenty options. Who else can I use apart from eskom unless I spend a pretty penny on an off grid solution? Where is my choice here? If SARB creates an alternative local gateway and it will save me .1+ % per TX I...

    Think about it for a second. Which merchants would use it if it's tied to a higher TX fee? How many places accept Amex?

    Reserve Bank wants to unveil South Africa-only bank card to take on Visa and Mastercard

    Yes as per my second reply. They need to display the full price including the 3% and are only allowed to offer the discount during checkout. Also wootware is a busy store. hardly doubt their transaction fees are 3%, so they probably even banking part of it.

    Car starting to consume oil at a faster rate

    Every single Audi I owned used a bit of oil. Some more some less. I also believe it depends on the engine type and how it's driven. My V8 uses around 1liter every 2500-4000km. Mostly depending on weather conditions and how I floor it.

    If you're using or burning 1 liter of oil per 1000km then there is a problem. VAG oil tolerance is 500ml per 1000km
