Ever-Changing Guidelines of the Credit Card Industry

High risk merchants that primarily depend primarily on credit card sales may want to expand their payment options with the current credit card industry changes. The new guidelines of the credit card industry have shocked some credit card users that have pristine credit histories. Many are considering opting out of their credit card companies, with the new laws and regulations imposed on the industry. The new rules have stemmed from the new federal administration, which has tried to limit the penalties on riskier borrowers.

Since there is a limited economic situation, many credit card customers are in major debt, and have been hit hard with fines and fees. But the new regulations will prevent fees from being raised without notice, or double billing practices that some credit card companies have used to extract more money from those with poor credit. To make up for the fees that they will lose from those in major debt, credit card companies are turning to extracting fees from those with good credit histories.

People with good credit are rebelling against the new rules, because in an effect, they are being held financially responsible for those who didn’t manage their credit well. Previously, they were able to get past annual fees even while earning frequent flier miles and other credit rewards.

The credit card industry has not always depended on a scaled fee depending on the quality of your credit. But the new regulations are disturbing the norm for what current credit card holders have seen as a beneficial payment option. The danger that this may have for the credit card industry has not yet been determined, as more than a third of consumers, about 50 million people, are responsible users with good credit histories.

Businesses and wholesalers may not decide to opt out of the credit card industry, because they depend on credit cards to make major purchases. They may understand the logic behind the industry’s new changes, as they must operate under a profitable business model and answer to shareholders. High risk processors may not be affected at all, for the type of businesses they are involved in may not invoke their customers to seek other payment options. Credit cards allow consumer’s identity theft protection and other payment protections that are not viable when using large amounts of cash or checks. For example, people may feel more secure using a credit card that may cost them slightly more annually for the convenience and practicality they provide. They may prefer the protection of a credit card to the uncertainty of holding large amounts of cash, or handling bank transfers and other complicated transactions.

Credit card processing online has increased sales for many businesses dramatically. If many consumers decide to use their credit cards less, then other payment options will need to be available to make purchases. Electronic checks or accounts with direct payment options such as Paypal are possibilities. Check with your high risk credit card merchant to determine what your best options are to promote sales by offering payment options.
