Abstract

This chapter introduces an artificial payment card market in which we model the interactions between consumers, merchants and competing card issuers with the aim of determining the optimal pricing structure for card issuers. We allow card issuers to charge consumers and merchants fixed fees, provide net benefits from card usage and engage in marketing activities. The demand by consumers and merchants is only affected by the size of the fixed fees and the optimal pricing structure consists of a sizeable fixed fee to consumers, no fixed fee to merchants, negative net benefits to consumers and merchants as well as a high marketing effort.
