Don’t Miss the NACS Swipe Fee Settlement Webinar on April 16

Participants will hear more details on what the latest settlement means for the convenience retail industry.

In March, a settlement was reached in the longstanding litigation over Visa and Mastercard’s swipe fees and operating rules, reported NACS Daily.

While the credit card industry is lauding the settlement as a resolution for retailers, NACS has serious concerns with the settlement and how it protects Visa and Mastercard’s price-fixing structure to the detriment of retailers nationwide.

NACS is hosting a webinar to cover the details of the settlement:
