Gartner to Visa, MasterCard: Play fair
Oft-quoted Gartner analyst Avivah Litan weighs in on the intriguingly gentle treatment of Sam’s Club by Visa and MasterCard:
* MasterCard and Visa: Show far greater transparency in enforcing PCI standards. There is still too much confusion about the standard and how to comply with it — confusion that is increased by seemingly unequal treatment of different types of retailers, such as Sam’s Club, and processors, such as CardSystems.
An excellent point, well worth repeating.
