Important Information Concerning Credit Card Transactions

UPDATE February 3rd 2023

As with everything in life today, costs are rising and not easing as the post-COVID recovery progresses.

Unfortunately my services are not unaffected, though my commitment to keeping fiber testing and biopsy services as affordable as possible remains.

For clients who pay by cash, bank transfer or check the prices for these services remain unchanged.
(These payment options are listed below.)
For growers paying by plastic card the fee for both OFDA tests rises by 25 cents and for biopsies by $5.

I hope you will understand that these are the first price rises for over 5 years but, unfortunately, they are unavoidable.

Please also note that credit card transaction fees are particularly harsh on small payment sums.
It is now necessary for me to place a minimum number on tests for those valued customers who wish to use their cards for payment for small numbers of tests:
Simple Test: 5
Premium Test: 3
Anyone wanting less than these numbers, please pay by personal check or bank transfer as below.
