Capital One® is committed to several voluntary codes of conduct designed to protect consumers.
Code of Conduct for the Credit and Debit Card Industry in Canada
The purpose of the Code is to demonstrate the industry's commitment to:
- Ensuring that merchants are fully aware of the costs associated with accepting credit and debit card payments thereby allowing merchants to reasonably forecast their monthly costs related to accepting such payments.
- Providing merchants with increased pricing flexibility to encourage consumers to choose the lowest-cost payment option.
- Allowing merchants to freely choose which payment options they will accept.
For more information on the Code of Conduct visit the Department of Finance Web site.
