said Beacon Business Network, LLC Managing Partner Eugene Cummings. “Beacon Business Network’s Facebook Fan Page and YouTube Channel provide a supportive and educational social network for businesses seeking additional information related to the Interchange Fee Class Action Settlement.”
The case against Visa and MasterCard alleges that the card networks have engaged in unlawful anticompetitive conduct by imposing restraints on merchants that result in retailers paying excessive interchange or “swipe” fees when accepting Visa and MasterCard credit cards. These fees, paid by U.S. merchants, generate tens of billions of dollars of annual revenue for credit card networks and their issuing banks. With an average interchange rate of more than 2.0%, U.S. merchants pay among the highest interchange rates in the developed world. These merchants, retailers and small businesses may now be eligible for a refund if they have accepted Visa or MasterCard credit cards for payment at any time since January 1, 2004 to the present. Interested businesses should go to www.BeaconBusinessNetwork.com for more information about their potential claim.
