Amazon said it would change the card ban announced last November and continue to make payments from Visa credit cards in the UK, starting this week on Wednesday, January 19th, according to theverge technical report.
In an email to customers, Amazon said it was working closely with Amazon.co.uk on a viable solution to help customers continue to use their Visa credit cards. May take, but “If you make any changes regarding Visa credit cards, we will notify you in advance.”
The original decision to ban Visa credit cards on Amazon.co.uk stemmed from a controversy surrounding the fees charged by card issuers.
Although it is not clear what the deal was between Amazon and Visa and who it favored, Sky News reported that shares of Visa fell after the ban was first announced. “Amazon customers can continue to use Visa cards on Amazon.co. After January 19, we’re working closely to reach an agreement.”
