Amazon to block Visa credit card payments in the UK next year
The Sun says AMAZON will block payments made using Visa credit cards in the UK from next year, affecting millions of customers.
The retail giant emailed customers to confirm it will stop accepting payments made using Visa credit cards issued in the UK “starting January 19 2022”.
Amazon cited “the high fees Visa charges for processing credit card transactions” as the reason for the decision.
Shoppers will still be able to use Visa debit cards and credit cards issued by other payment firms.
In March it was reported that Visa was planning to hike fees for purchases ordered in the UK from Europe.
