Credit card companies are trying to convince Congress to delay a capping rule that was part of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Bill. The capping rule would affect the amount merchants are charged for each debit-card transaction. The rule would cap transaction fees at 12 cents instead of the existing 1% of the purchase price. Despite the fact that credit card companies pass these fees along to banks it is feared that the capping rule will have a long-term affect on U.S debit volume growth and could encourage issuers to recommend other payment methods. Banks could see immediate short-term revenue losses if the capping law is not delayed. A number of card issuers could be affected by the changes.
