Staples Charges Customers for ‘Virus Scanning’

By | December 21, 2005

Staples is apparently charging customers a $2.49 fee for ‘virus scanning’ on their files when they bring documents for printing on discs. This is purely ridiculous as we all know it doesn’t cost anything for their automated virus software to scan the files on open. A reader comment on the article states that it’s also called a ‘rip fee’ and is charged because it somehow takes longer to pull a file off a disc and print it. Check it out.
