Unless a settlement is reached, on May 1 Internet merchants and other mom-and-pop firms that rely on third-party billing could miss out on sales via the USA's No. 2 online credit card. And MasterCard holders could have a harder time using their cards at many sites that use PayPal and similar services, says Gartner analyst Avivah Litan.

I was under the impression that fraud was at a higher instance than 1 in 20. Glad I was incorrect in that assumption.

Yet another reason to obtain a merchant account - but it is expensive for very small companies. Been there.

I would wager that if PayPal comes up with increased security policies and measures, they'll be able to keep service exchange with PayPal.

Well....if you can get a MasterCard, you can get a Visa card.

Hopefully people will resist yet another strong arm tactic by a financial institution....but I doubt it.

Seems that one of two things will happen.

A. People will use VISA.
B. People will use VISA.

Anyone have a MasterCard but not a Visa?

Paypal doesn't work from the Czech Republic anyway.

While they (VISA and MasterCard) are careful not to act as a monopoly, can VISA be too far behind with a similar position?

I have a mastercard because Czech VISA doesn't work over the net.
