Why do small grocery stores in the US ask for my ID with a credit card, while big ones, like Whole Foods or Safe Way, never ask for it. It is not related to buying alcohol)?
I know that merchants are allowed to ask for ID. I’m just wondering why only small stores do this.
I live in the US only several months, and I’m not familiar with local rules. I’m from Europe, where I was never asked for ID to make a credit card purchase in my life because all cards are PIN protected.
