A new agreement sees Barclays Merchants operating in the UK now able to accept cards provided on the Discover Global Network.
Whilst we agree these card types - i.e. Discover, Diners and others on the plan are not usually UK provided they are prominent in the US and in other Worldwide marketplaces
With the reach of today's business and tourism it's not just the main metropolitan areas of the UK that might be presented with these cards.
We take it pretty much for granted that when we offer our credit card in payment it will be accepted so we think it's a good thing that provision is being made for acceptance of a wider range of credit card types.
