A Thought Provoking Article in the Payments Journal by CSCU's Lou Grilli

You will want to take a few minutes to read a new posting in Payments Journal by CSCU’s Director of Payments Strategy, Lou Grilli, titled “What if Credit Card Interchange Gets Cut in Half?” Lou points out that credit cards are the second most important revenue source behind auto loans with interchange making up a significant portion of that revenue. Your credit union may be offering reward programs to influence your members to use their credit cards rather than lower interchange debit cards. However, as Lou points out, there are global and local factors starting to take shape that are putting pressure to lower credit interchange rates.  Lou offers some ideas and recommendations on what actions credit unions should be doing to focus new cardholder programs on revenue producing strategies that are not solely reliant on interchange.
