Abstract

Two widely discussed pricing benchmarks in the literature on payment cards markets are the -tourist test- interchange fee Rochet and Tirole, 2010, which internalizes usage externalities in payment card markets, and -perfect surcharging- by merchants Rochet and Tirole, 2002.This paper shows that these benchmarks are allocatively equivalent. Implications for the regulatory treatment of interchange fees and no-surcharge rules are discussed.
