I always thought that five & over would get rounded up, four or less rounded down. Now I’m very confused!

It’s rounded to the nearest 5, not 10. It’s very simple.

Murtle

That’s correct if you’re rounding to the nearest 10c, but this is to the nearest 5c. eg €1.48 rounds up €1.50, but €1.47 rounds down to €1.45. Simples

The poster should just read –

TO THE NEAREST 5c

Done.

No such thing as a stupid question..
That sorta attitude allows a couple of billion here and there to be miscalculated and no one will bat an eyelid coz you’re just supposed to understand it.

Since it’s virtually always €x.99 it’s virtually always rounded up.

some important points in that poster:
Rounding is voluntary, if you want exact change, just ask for it, the retailer is obliged to give it to you.
It also only applies to cash transactions, so any card transaction CANNOT be rounded.

That’s a bit mad.
