Z-DAD: Not extortion. A marketing decision. I’ll get extra hashgachos if it will entice nmore customers in here. If I think the third Hashgacha will cost me, say, $2000, but it will bring in 10K of new business, then I do it. If I think that the amount of people for whom the first 2 hashgachos weren’t enough but who will be impressed by the third hashgacha, they’ll bring in less then that in net revenue, then I don’t get the third hashgacha. Simple budgeting and math. No extortion there.
