Didn't get your paperwork? Use this form to opt back in to the VISA/MasterCard interchange settlement
During the last few weeks WPMCA has sent out information suggesting that retailers opt back in to the VISA/MasterCard interchange settlement. We have since learned that many merchants have not received an opt-in form AND cannot obtain one from the settlement phone number or website. If you have not received your opt-in paperwork, fill out this WPMCA form and mail it to:
Payment Card Interchange Fee Settlement
PO Box 2530
Portland OR 97208-2530
The form must be postmarked by December 19, 2014!
Why opt back in? At this time WPMCA does not believe that the judge in the case will change his mind (the original reason for opting out) and he certainly intends for the settlement to go forward. The ONLY reason for you not to opt back in to this case is if you want to be part of a separate lawsuit.
NACS is putting together a group of retailers who will continue to sue for a better deal from VISA/MasterCard. If you are interested in that option please contact NACS counsel Doug Kantor at 202-429-3775 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact Bernstein Litowitz, the law firm that will be representing the group, at 212-554-1907.
Otherwise, opt back in to the original lawsuit using the forms you received in the mail or the WPMCA form. As always, feel free to call us with any further questions: 608-256-7555
