Apparently they don’t want our money if they have to spend money.

Just got that in my inbox from Amazon this morning.

I get the impression this is going to get louder with a bit of
'My Dad's bigger than your Dad'
and
'Hold my coat'

Apparently this is down to Visa putting up interchange fees on transactions.

EU put a cap on this, so it's not happening there, just in the UK.

Oh another Brexit benefit.
Wonderful on these sunny uplands isn't it.

Wasn't the last row like this when you could only book World Cup or Olympic tickets on one or the other of them?

you can get an Amazon Mastercard, i guess they'll get a lot of applications today, especially with £40 gift card!

My bank switched my debit card from Visa to Mastercard early this year and I was very frustrated as I knew the details off by heart and now I don't, so this is actually something that doesn't affect me thankfully.

They'll still take Visa debit - that isn't affected, it's just Visa credit card payments.

Just thinking, we've got a card payment terminal - I wonder if Visa are going to put up our transaction costs?

Thanks from: Robee J Shepherd

An easy workaround would be to get a Curve card and assign your Visa credit card to it.
