Amazon said it would not stop accepting UK-issued Visa credit cards on its UK site later this month and suggested it work with Visa to resolve a dispute over payment fees.
The company said in an email to customers, “The expected change regarding the use of Visa credit cards on the company’s UK website will not occur on January 19 this year.”
She added: “We are working closely with Visa to find a potential solution that will enable customers to continue to use their Visa credit cards on our UK site.”
Last November, Amazon announced that it would ban the Visa card due to the high transaction fees charged by the payment processor.
It said customers can still use Visa debit cards, as well as MasterCard, AMEX and EuroCard credit cards.
Yesterday, a Visa spokesperson said, “Amazon customers can continue to use Visa cards on the Amazon UK website after January 19… as we are working closely together to reach an agreement.”
Last November, Visa said it was “extremely disappointed that Amazon was threatening to restrict consumer choice”. EU caps on fees charged by card issuers no longer apply in the UK after Brexit.
