Amazon.com announced on Monday that it would not stop taking UK-issued Visa Inc credit cards issued on its British website later this month, as it had proposed, and that it was working with Visa to resolve a payment fee dispute.

In an email to consumers, the company stated, "the expected change affecting the use of Visa credit cards on Amazon.co.uk will no longer take place on January 19."

"We're working closely with Visa on a potential solution that will allow customers to continue to use their Visa credit cards on Amazon.co.uk."

Amazon announced in November that it will no longer accept Visa's card due to the payment processor's high transaction fees. Customers could still use Visa debit cards, as well as Mastercard and Amex credit cards and Eurocard, according to the company.

"Amazon customers can continue to use Visa cards on Amazon.co.uk after January 19 while we work closely together to establish an agreement," a Visa spokesperson said on Monday.

Visa had expressed in November that it was "very disappointed with Amazon's threat to restrict consumer choice".

Following Brexit, the UK is no longer subject to an EU-enforced fee cap on card issuers.
