No signing for card buys at more places
At least 11 retailers and restaurants don't require it for small purchases
Retailers and restaurants have been slowly taking up the option of offering signature-free transactions for small credit card purchases - and many of those who have say it is speeding up service.
The Straits Times found that at least 11 merchants - FairPrice, Metro, Takashimaya, Watsons, Han's, Starbucks, Royal Sporting House, Jones the Grocer, Marche, ComfortDelGro and the Dairy Farm Group of supermarkets - have stopped requiring signatures for small purchases.
Others like department store Tangs will implement it by the end of this month.
From 2010, credit card companies gave merchants the option to tweak their terminals, allowing them to accept such payments.
