What is the Visa/Mastercard Settlement?

On March 26, 2024, an agreement was reached between merchants and Visa/Mastercard, stemming from a class-action lawsuit over swipe fees. As a result, businesses across various industries stand to receive compensation for overcharges on their credit card processing fees.

Swipe fees, like the ones paid to Visa and Mastercard, are paid to credit card companies in exchange processing transactions. Frequently, merchants are passing those fees onto the consumer by either charging more for services or upcharging on credit card transactions. In 2005, a lawsuit was filed against Visa, Mastercard, and their member banks for charging excessive fees in violation of Federal Antitrust laws. This settlement is the conclusion of a series of complicated legal actions regarding the processing fees Visa and Mastercard charged to merchants between 2004 and 2019.
