NewsChannel 3 is taking action to warn you about a new fee you could be charged for using your credit card.

Stores can now pass fees they're charged onto you costing you up to an additional four percent.

It's part of a settlement between Visa, MasterCard, and 9 different banks.

You won't be charged if you pay with debit.

Ten states have prohibited the surcharges but neither Virginia nor North Carolina are on that list.

The new surcharges started on Sunday.
