Interchange fees in card payments
The present paper explores issues surrounding multilateral interchange fees (MIFs) in payment card markets from various angles.

Transparency and clarity with respect to the real costs and benefits of different payment instruments are indispensable for a modern and harmonised European retail payments market. Interchange fees (if any) should be set at a reasonable level so as to promote overall economic efficiency in compliance with competition rules.JEL code: G21, D43, L13.
