Credit card surcharging - who is going to do it and what are the stipulations for compliance?
This training on credit card surcharges compliance will discuss how the recent changes in law will affect end-user organizations. It will also provide attendees with the tools necessary to review and deal with any potential surcharge/checkout fee situations.
Why Should You Attend:
Surcharging had been historically prohibited in the U.S. per the networks' merchant rules, as well as prohibited by law in 10 states. Any state laws will continue to "trump" networks' merchant rules. The recent changes in surcharging law could not only affect your merchant processing transactions but also your credit card usage. The worst thing end-user organizations can do is to have an uninformed reaction to surcharging. It's important to first look at the big picture. End-users should also educate suppliers about the economics of card acceptance, pointing out the savings possible and other benefits. When suppliers are reaping the rewards, they should not be adding a surcharge. They might overlook the benefits of card acceptance, as well as the cost of other payment methods like checks and cash. This training on credit card interchange fees rules will clearly explain the changes in the rules, who will benefit from the changes and how it will affect the retailers and customers.
