Customer: replied 2 months ago.
NO!!!! I HAVE TOLD YOU that she had a script made up and paid for it but the chemist also charged her what he called a ''staged fee" of $7 . what is a staged fee and is it legal , the chemist said he was charging her an extra $1 per day for the tabs
Expert:  Daniel replied 2 months ago.

Hello

It is legal, as it is a holding fee to keep the medication there for to purchase.
its a common procedure, sadly, if she is unhappy paying the extra amount she may need to go elsewhere and see if any other chemist is able to provide it without fees.
