E-commerce giant Amazon will continue to accept UK-issued visa credit cards on its British website. The company emailed customers on Monday with the update. Back in November, the retail giant took the controversial step, saying it would ban the use of Visa credit cards because of high transaction fees. Since Brexit, the EU's enforced-cap on the fees charged by card issuers no longer applies in the UK.
