Amazon eyes ‘solution’ in Visa fee dispute
Amazon told customers Monday it is dropping its plan to stop accepting Visa cards issued in the United Kingdom.
The change was set to be implemented on Wednesday, but the company said it would be paused as it works with Visa on a “potential solution” to solve a dispute over fees.
“The expected change regarding the use of Visa credit cards on Amazon.co.uk will no longer take place on January 19. We are working closely with Visa on a potential solution that will enable customers to continue using their Visa credit cards on Amazon.co.uk.,” Amazon said in an email to customers.
The e-commerce giant didn’t rule out any future plans to limit Visa card use but told customers it would give them “advance notice” before any related changes.
