Ahead of trialogue discussions, the commerce sector urges the European Council and Parliament to devise a text that sets harmonised caps on debit and credit cards with no 'weighted average', includes three-party schemes and commerical cards within the regulation, and one that removes the honour-all-cards rule and ensures swift implemention.

From a Corporates’ perspective, the full benefits of SEPA can only be realised if SEPA payments are accompanied by efficient and standardised   payment communication and reconciliation. The current SEPA scheme limitations do not fulfill these expectations as the SEPA scheme limits remittance information both in form and in length, contrary to the underlying ISO20022 standard.

We need urgent action on card fees, say Europe’s payment users

The European Payment Users Alliance represents businesses and consumers across Europe. We have a simple message for Europe’s politicians: we need the interchange fee regulation as a matter of urgency.
