Amazon will continue to accept Visa card payments in the UK

“If we introduce any changes to the Visa credit card, we’ll give you advance notice,” Amazon said.

London.- American online commerce giant Amazon announced Monday that it will finally stop accepting, as previously announced, payments made by its UK customers with Visa credit cards.

The online shopping group explained in November 2021 that from the next 19 days it would stop offering that payment option in the country due to “the high fees that Visa charges for processing transactions made by credit card.”

As Amazon pointed out at the time, shoppers would be able to continue to make payments via debit cards, including the company’s debit cards, and other credit cards issued by other companies – apart from Visa.

However, in a new email sent to customers today, the group said “Amazon customers may continue to use their Visa card on Amazon.co.uk beyond January 19 while we work together to reach an agreement.” (with Visa).

In that final message, the group did not specify whether the dispute with Visa had been definitively resolved.

“If we introduce any changes to the Visa credit card, we’ll give you advance notice,” Amazon said.

Last November, a spokesman for the company owned by Jeff Bezos from America regretted that fees derived from transactions paid for with Visa credit cards remained high and continued to increase.

The group also assured that it will continue to “innovate for the sake of customers to add and promote faster, cheaper and more inclusive payment options” in its stores around the world.
