I have some items on consignment at a local artists 'co-op' type thing. Base consignment is 30% and they take less the more hours you work at the shop (down to 20%). I just found out they are also taking an extra 3.25% if the item is purchased with a credit card (this is what the credit card people take just for using the card).

Is anyone else selling stuff on consignment or any other similar situation? Is this credit card percentage common to pass down to the artist? I thought it was something the store would have to take, not pass along. My boyfriend thinks I'm being taken for a ride, but I don't know if this is standard practice.
