NSGA Joins Merchants Payments Coalition

Corporate, NSGA News • May 9, 2023

In April 2023, the National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA) joined the Merchants Payments Coalition (MPC), which is a broad-based group comprised of associations and organizations representing retailers, supermarkets, restaurants, drug stores, convenience stores, gas stations, and other businesses focused on reforming the US payments system to make it more transparent and introduce a competitor into the routing system other than Visa and Mastercard. 

NSGA supports the efforts of the MPC as this legislation would provide competition into a market which affects every retailer operating in America and would lower the cost of doing business for our members and their customers.
