American Express Co. to Revise Merchant Agreements Following Court Ruling

A federal judge ordered American Express Co. to let merchants steer customers to other forms of plastic payments, including debit cards. The order implements an earlier U.S. District Court ruling stating that American Express had violated antitrust laws by not permitting merchants to encourage customers to use cheaper cards. The decision gives merchants latitude to encourage customers to use cards other than those offered by AmEx by offering discounts, rebates or other enticements to customers. The card company's long-standing rules have not permitted merchants to steer consumers to alternate forms of payment. The notification also warns merchants, however, that they aren't permitted to disparage or mischaracterize the American Express brand. Merchants also aren't permitted to charge customers more for using an AmEx card, although they can offer a discount for using a card other than AmEx. Following the order, American Express reiterated that it will appeal the decision, saying that it will hurt competition.
