When making a purchase online, a common restriction is only being able to use one credit card per purchase. For the most part, consumers don't really need the the ability to use multiple credit cards. That is, unless you'd like to use a bank issued gift card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express).
This limitation can be rather frustrating. For example, if a person gives you a $50 Vanilla Visa Gift Card and your purchase total is $55.64, you simply can't use the gift card because the order total exceeds the balance of the gift card.
Earlier this week, I was ordering my iPhone 4 from apple.com and, lo and behold, apple offered a link to 'Pay with two credit cards'. This is the first time I've seen an online storefront accept two different credit card for one online purchase.
After clicking the link, another field appears for a second credit card. Furthermore, customers can specify the dollar amount charged by each transaction.
Consider me impressed, Apple! I would love to see this become a standard feature for all merchants doing business via the internet. Do you know of other businesses accepting multiple credit cards for payment? If so, let's hear about it!
