Visa, MasterCard still fixing card fees -merchants | Reuters #swipefees


Nearly eight years after Visa Inc and MasterCard Inc agreed to pay more than $3 billion to resolve allegations that they conspired to raise stores’ fees for processing their payment cards, merchants returned to court on Wednesday to argue that the card companies still maintain a costly stranglehold on interchange networks.

U.S. District Judge John Gleeson heard oral arguments in Brooklyn federal court from a slate of lawyers representing the credit card companies, their issuing banks and the merchants over whether to proceed to trial on the latest round of antitrust allegations against the card companies’ and banks’ interchange networks, which process customers’ credit- and debit-card payments to stores.
