CardWeb.com’s CardData Reports today features the “Global Interchange Regulation: Pandora’s Box for Commercial Cards?” by Mercator.
Since the enactment of the Durbin Amendment in the U.S. with its caps on interchange (multilateral interchange fees) on consumer debit and credit card transactions, a topic of discussion has been the potential expansion of similar limits to commercial cards (also known as corporate or business cards).
Recent regulatory activities in markets outside of the United States, particularly in the European Union, have caused many in the commercial card issuing industry to assess what caps would mean for their business.
Mercator Advisory Group’s newest research note, Global Interchange Regulation: Pandora’s Box for Commercial Cards?, examines the current state of commercial card interchange based on global regulatory activities and learnings from the regulations enacted for consumer credit cards.
Highlights of the research note include:
The contribution of interchange in commercial card issuers’ revenues
Interchange regulation in the European Union and other global markets
The potential impacts of interchange regulation on commercial cards
