Fight Swipe Fees at Your Store—Today

NACS shares store signage for retailers to display supporting the Credit Card Competition Act.

November 15, 2023

The fight to lower credit card swipe fees is ongoing in D.C., and the convenience industry needs your help sending a message to your elected officials. Over the last month alone, the banking industry has spent millions of dollars to stop legislation that would finally make Visa, Mastercard and their issuing banks compete for your business. We need your help in this fight.

NACS is asking convenience retailers to download and install pump toppers and window displays at their stores as soon as possible. It’s critical that lawmakers see the widespread support that exists for the Credit Card Competition Act within the industry, from single store owners to multistate operators.

Convenience stores are uniquely positioned, with half of America visiting one of our 150,000 locations every single day. This is why NACS is launching this massive grassroots campaign down to the store level in support of the Credit Card Competition Act. If passed, the Credit Card Competition Act would result in $15 billion in savings annually for businesses and consumers. The signage encourages customers to join us in the fight and to contact their lawmakers.

These displays are accessible on the NACS website. There are multiple versions you can choose from, and each style comes in a variety of sizes. If your Member of Congress is already a supporter of the Credit Card Competition Act, we have “Thank You” displays ready for download and installation as well.

This is a fight the convenience industry can win with your help. For more information, reach out to Margaret Hardin at

This past weekend, Senator Roger Marshall (R-Kansas) visited a Casey’s convenience store in Topeka, Kansas, to discuss swipe fees and other industry concerns as well as tour the store, shadow the manager and interact with customers and constituents.

Throughout its almost 200 locations in Kansas, Casey’s is estimated to have paid $17 million in swipe fees this year alone, according to a press release from the senator’s office. Senator Marshall, a longstanding defender of small businesses, helped to introduce the Credit Card Competition Act this year.
