Piece of Sale / Point of ****

question blockSomething I have been noticing with increasing frequency at POS (that’s Point of Sale, not Piece of ****) terminals is an option to pay with multiple credit cards. I worked in retail many years ago and know that paying with multiple cards has always been a feature that is on the store employee’s side of the terminal and is always available by asking, but it had never really been visible from the shopper’s end. Is this change a feature that multiple POS vendors just simultaneously decided would be nice, or is it a reflection of the state of the economy? Are there enough people out there with nearly-maxed-out or extremely-low-limit credit cards that this is becoming a necessity?
