About Us

Credit and debit card swipe fees are an enormous – and growing – cost for merchants and consumers. The average American household pays hundreds of dollars a year in swipe fees, which are part of the cost of virtually every transaction they make. Why? Because swipe fees are hidden in the cost of nearly everything consumers buy. Nearly $2 of every $100 consumers spend when they pay with plastic goes directly to Visa and MasterCard.

The Merchants Payments Coalition is fighting for a more competitive and transparent credit card fee system that better serves American consumers and merchants alike.

Mission Statement

The Merchants Payments Coalition - UnfairCreditCardFees.com - is a group of retailers, supermarkets, restaurants, drug stores, convenience stores, gas stations, on-line merchants and other businesses fighting unfair credit-card fees and advocating for a more competitive and transparent system that works better for consumers and merchants.
