I received an email from Next Directory and it states

 

 

"We will charge you a late payment fee of £5.00 if your account is two months in arrears" which is reasonable

 

The fees used to be in region of about £15.00 - £20.00 for every missed payment

 

 

KEEP UP THE FIGHT

It is more reasonable but if it exceeds the actual cost then it is disproportionate and is invalid.

 

Still a substantial improvement.

This is still invalid as a late payment penalty, as it costs them nothing (certainly not a fixed fee) to administer a late payment they haven't received.

 

They should, surely, be saying that 8% will be charged once you are two months overdue.

But if I buy a pair of socks and put it on the card, and then don't pay on time, what have they lost, apart from the interest? What is the fixed fee for? :?

 

I agree that it would be uneconomical to sue for each breach, but these principles are always tested at the lower limits. :wink:

 

Mind you - we should not get sucked into a game where the banks insist that we come up with a solution. That's their responsibility, as long as its legal and fair.

If anyone from Next is reading.

 

Tomorrow I will be cancelling that nice glass table and chairs I ordered.

 

You just an lost an order for over 1.2K, suggest you change your view of a customer.

 

My conservatory will just have to have plants.
