Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application is a continuation of, and claims priority to, U.S. patent application Ser. No. 09/593,199 entitled “Method for a Dual Credit Card System” and filed Jun. 14, 2000, which is based on, and claims priority to, U.S. provisional Patent Application Serial No. 60/202,980, entitled “Method for a Dual Credit Card System” and filed May 10, 2000, the contents of both of which are herein incorporated by reference for all purposes.[0001]
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • The invention is related to a credit card system, in particular to the implementation of a dual credit card system including the creation and usage of a dual credit card. [0002]
  • There are three types of consumer credit cards generally available to the public. The first type of card is a bankcard such as issued by a bank or other financial institution. Typical examples are a VISA®, MasterCard®, DISCOVER® or American Express Optima® cards. These cards allow purchase of goods and services and charges can be paid off monthly or have a portion paid monthly with remaining balance subject to interest. The user may pay an annual fee as well. There are usually different levels of these cards that range from a standard card, to a Gold Card or Platinum Card with different annual charges and different services. The credit provider sets a dollar limit depending upon the credit worthiness of the cardholder. The merchant pays an interchange fee based upon a percentage of the amount of the individual charge. [0003]
  • The second type of card is a charge card such as the American Express® series of cards. These cards allow the user to charge purchases and services to the account. The customer is expected to pay the balance in full monthly. There is usually no interest charged. The limit on purchases is not usually geared to any set amount but based upon the users usage history. There is an annual fee paid by the cardholder and the merchant pays a fee similar to the interchange fee based on the level of purchase. The American Express fee paid by the merchant is usually higher than the typical bankcard interchange fee. [0004]
  • The third type of card is the “private label” credit card. A private label credit card is issued by or on behalf of, a merchant such as Wal-Mart, Sears, or Brooks Brothers (some issued and serviced by the merchant, some issued and serviced by a financial institution). The financial transaction works very similar to a bankcard. The private label credit card's use is usually limited to the merchant issuing/sponsoring the credit card. The private label card user may pay the monthly charges or partially pay the balance and pay interest on the unpaid balance as with a bankcard. The merchant pays the financial institution a fee similar to the interchange fee of a bankcard. This fee is usually lower than the interchange fee with a bankcard. There are some retailers who issue and service their own private label card. Then there are companies like GE Capital who issue cards that are private labeled in the name of a retailer. [0005]
  • Consumers like the convenience of credit cards and like to take advantage of the services available from the various credit card services. However they find themselves having too many credit cards. An advantage of the private label credit card is the availability of special promotional financing offers (such as “no interest for x months” promotions) and merchandise information from the issuer or associated merchant of the private label credit card. The primary advantage of the bankcard is the almost universal acceptance world wide of a VISA® card, MasterCard®, or DISCOVER® card. These cards also typically have lower interest rates. [0006]
  • The merchants prefer that their customers use their private label credit card so that the merchant can use the monthly mailings as a vehicle of developing customer loyalty through special offers and other merchandising efforts. The merchants also prefer not to pay the higher interchange fees associated with generally available bankcards or the American Express card. The merchants also like the idea of a dedicated credit line for use in their retail store. However, many customers are reluctant to carry any more plastic in their wallets than absolutely necessary. [0007]
  • Therefore there is a need for a “dual credit card” that provides the merchant and consumers of the bankcard and the private label credit card. [0008]
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The dual credit card system is in two parts: a) the creation of a dual credit card and b) the usage of a dual credit card. The creation begins with the receipt of an application by the merchant for a dual credit card. The issuing organization determines the interest rate and the credit line and issues the dual credit card to applicant. This is a combined private label and bankcard product with one interest rate and one credit line. That credit line will have a portion which is available only at the merchant's location. The issuer will determine that single credit line and the interest rate. [0009]
  • The user may make a purchase with the dual credit card at either a private label merchant location or at a location accepting the bankcard. Either location may be an Internet site or a physical location. For the purposes of this application a location includes physical locations as well as an Internet sites. When a purchase is made at a merchant location, the processing of the merchant location dual credit card purchase is done via a private-label processing channel. The private-label channel interchange fee is paid as part of this process. The private label back office operation processes the merchant location purchase as a private label purchase and then feeds the transaction to the bankcard issuer or subsequent processor. The transaction is then incorporated into the bankcard balance and statement. [0010]
  • If the user uses the dual credit card at a non-merchant location, the purchase may be processed through the VISA/MasterCard network. The network interchange fee is paid as part of this process. The cooperating bankcard back office operation process the non-merchant purchase as a bankcard purchase. A key element of this dual card process is the use of a bankcard facility for both bankcard purchases and private label services. [0011]
  • Since the bankcard back office operation is processing both private-label purchases and bankcard purchases for the dual card user, cardholder statements may include merchant promotion material as well as normal operational customer service matters for both the merchant channel as well as the bankcard channel. The customer service functions may include normal customer service matters as well as collections and settlement issues. [0012]
  • These and other features and advantages of the present invention will be apparent from the following brief description of the drawings, detailed description, and appended claims and drawings.[0013]
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • The invention will be further described in connection with the accompanying drawings, which are meant to be exemplary, not limiting, and wherein: [0014]
  • FIG. 1 illustrates the flow diagram of a dual credit card acquisition; and [0015]
  • FIG. 2 illustrates the flow diagram of dual credit card usage.[0016]
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • FIG. 1 illustrates the flow diagram of a customer's acquisition of a dual credit card [0017] 10. A prospective credit card customer applies for the dual credit card 12 at a merchant issuing/sponsoring a private label credit card. The dual card will be a bankcard branded with the merchant's name and will appear like a bankcard such as (VISA®, MasterCard®, DISCOVER® or other “general purpose” credit cards). The applicant provides personal, credit and employment information to the dual credit card issuer. Based upon the information supplied, the financial institution issuing the bankcard assigns a credit limit and/or an interest rate 14 and issues the credit card 16 to the applicant. A key element is that the dual credit card issuer is a cooperating financial institution that is issuing the dual credit card as a bankcard for non-merchant sales and a private label credit card for in-merchant sales.
  • FIG. 2 illustrates the flow diagram of the consumer use of the dual credit card [0018] 20. The user goes to the private label merchant physical location, catalog or Internet site to purchase goods or services and uses the dual credit card for payment 22. The merchant uses an in-store reader to communicate the card number, the merchant number and the level of purchase to the private label processing operation 24. The merchant credit card system is able to determine from the BIN number, a part of the credit card account number, that the purchase using the dual credit card should be processed though the private label system rather than the VISA/MC network. If the system detects a non-merchant bankcard, the purchase will be processed through the VISA/MC network.
  • If the purchase using the dual credit card is within the card users credit limit, the purchase is processed through the private label processing operation [0019] 24 including paying a private label interchange fee. The private label purchase is paid to the merchant, less the discount fee 26 and 28 by the private label processing operation 24.
  • The private label purchase charge is sent on to a cooperating bankcard back office operation [0020] 36 for further processing including cardholder statements and normal customer service, collections and settlement matters. The cardholder statements 40 are sent to the cardholder on a monthly basis.
  • FIG. 2 also illustrates the flow diagram of the consumer use of the dual credit card as a bankcard. The user goes to a non-private label merchant to purchase goods or services and uses the dual credit card for payment [0021] 30. The bankcard merchant uses an in-store reader to communicate the card number, the merchant number and the level of purchase to the bankcard network, such as VISA/MC 36. The bankcard merchant credit card system is able to determine that the purchase using the dual credit card should be processed though the VISA/MC network.
  • If the purchase using the dual credit card is within the card users bankcard credit limit, the purchase is processed through the bankcard network, such as VISA/MC network including paying a network interchange fee [0022] 34. The bankcard purchase is paid to the non-private label merchant 32 less the interchange fee 34 by the bankcard network 36.
  • The bankcard purchase charge is sent on to a cooperating bankcard back office operation [0023] 38 for further processing including cardholder statements and normal customer service, collections and settlement matters. The cardholder statements 40 are sent to the cardholder on a monthly basis.
  • The advantages of such a dual credit card system for the private label merchant is that the customers have one card that can be used in two ways. One way as a private label credit card that provides the private label credit card merchant with a means to provide marketing information to his customers and to ensure that a portion of the credit line is protected for in store purchases. The second way is the use of a recognized brand name card with a potential for lower credit card interchange than a standard bankcard or charge card. The promotional capabilities of a dual credit card are useful to both the merchant and the consumer. [0024]
  • The user of the dual credit card has the advantages of both a nationally recognized bankcard and a private label card. A recognized disadvantage of bankcards and charge cards is that, a consumer using such cards is not recognized by the merchant as a customer of that merchant. Many such customers enjoy getting catalogs and other mailing information from the merchants that they purchase from on a regular basis. Another advantage of the dual credit card is that the consumer has one less credit card to carry and/or keep track of. [0025]
  • The present invention can be embodied in the form of computer-implemented processes and apparatuses for practicing those processes. The present invention can also be embodied in the form of computer program code containing instructions, embodied in tangible media, such as floppy diskettes, CD-ROMs, hard drives, or any other computer-readable storage medium, wherein, when the computer program code is loaded into and executed by a computer, the computer becomes an apparatus for practicing the invention. The present invention can also be embodied in the form of a computer program code, for example, whether stored in a storage medium, loaded into and/or executed by a computer, or transmitted over some transmission medium, such as over electrical wiring or cabling, through fiber optics, or via electromagnetic radiation, wherein, when the computer program code is loaded into and executed by a computer, the computer becomes an apparatus for practicing the invention. When the implementation on a general-purpose microprocessor, the computer program code segments configure the microprocessor to create specific logic circuits. At each step of the process there is the involvement of a plurality of computers and a computer systems. [0026]
  • While the invention has been described with reference to preferred embodiments, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that various changes may be made and equivalents may be substituted for elements thereof without departing from the scope of the invention. In addition, many modifications may be made to adapt a particular situation or material to the teachings of the invention without departing from the essential scope thereof. Therefore, it is intended that the invention not be limited to the particular embodiments disclosed as the best mode contemplated for this invention, but that the invention will include all embodiments falling within the scope of the appended claims.
