08:02 EDTV, DFSVisa, PULSE agree on EMV common debt solution
Visa (V) and PULSE, a Discover Financial Services (DFS) company, announced an agreement to enable financial institutions that issue EMV debit cards on both the Visa and PULSE networks to use Visa’s common debit solution. Visa’s common application identifier supports U.S. debit regulations requiring the ability to route transactions over multiple, unaffiliated networks. A common debit solution shared among all participants will help to accelerate EMV chip adoption in the U.S. and provide a uniform platform that will enable network innovation. PULSE will use functionality on Visa’s common AID to facilitate all types of point-of-sale debit transactions on its network. In addition, the agreement enables PULSE to facilitate domestic ATM transactions on its network and provides for issuer choice in the routing of ATM transactions.

15:54 EDTVVisa, MasterCard could be hurt by new Canadian credit card rules, WSJ says
Canada is preparing to announce broad changes to its code of conduct for the credit- and debit-card industry, which could make it the first country to give merchants the right to reject mobile payments through Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA) even if the merchants accept their physical cards, said The Wall Street Journal, citing a draft copy of rules that could be announced this week.

15:17 EDTVCFPB may require added disclosures on prepaid cards, WSJ says
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is expected to propose new rules later this week that will require more disclosure for prepaid debit cards and cracking down on allowing consumers to spend more money on the cards than they have, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The rules come as traditional financial institutions, such as JPMorgan (JPM) and American Express (AXP) have moved into the business and the industry’s biggest players don’t allow overdrafts so it is unclear whether the new rules will dent industry profits, the report said. Green Dot (GDOT) also does not permit overdrafts and Visa (V) recently excluded overdraft abilities in guidelines for its prepaid cards, the report added. Reference Link
