A couple of weeks back,I went to a pharmacy to get some documents certified,they said they were busy,and I went to another one,they were busy as well.I then went to a third pharmacy(Nova pharmacy),and they certified what I had,but made me give a "donation" to a charity,which worked out to be roughly 50 cents for each page!
Last week,one of my friends had to do the same,and Chemist's Warehouse made her "donate" $13 for 26 pages!
What's going on?Isn't this illegal?I might as well go bankrupt paying for certification of documents!

I didn't think they could do that?! Love the term donation, I guess you refuse if it is really just a donation.

I pay $4 at the post office also. I do understand it's taking up their time and they must get a lot of ppl in for it.

Justices of Peace don't charge a cent for certifying documents.
If pharmacies/post offices charge,that should be mentioned on websites or they shouldn't be included in the list of people who can certify documents!

It is probably a discouragement tactic on their behalf. I'm sure it's one of those unpaid things they get asked to do keeping them from getting other work done. And sometimes people can go in expecting to get it done quickly, just as some people expect their scripts to be done in 5 seconds. (I'm glad op that you weren't angry about the other places saying they were busy).

Next time go to the Police Station. They can certify and don't charge a cent!
