Aldi has had its views on new debit fees upheld by the Australian Federal Court, it has been reported. The discounter went to court to stop banks and its rivals Coles and Woolworths from making what it says are misleading comments about the effects that new fees on the Eftpos debit scheme, which come into effect this month, would have. The court criticised E-Pal for failing to be clear and open that retailers and consumers may be affected by a decision to raise fees. Independent payments provider Tyro Payments welcomed the decision, saying it would lead to greater transparency.
