It isn’t clear how the payment would be split up among the card networks and the issuing banks. The parties on Tuesday informed the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York that they reached a settlement, the people said.

Under the settlement, Visa, Mastercard and a number of banks that issue debit and credit cards, including JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N), Citigroup Inc (C.N) and Bank of America Corp (BAC.N), would pay the merchants around $6.5 billion, the report said. MasterCard said in a regulatory filing it would boost its reserve by about $210 million in the second quarter to account for claims related to a lawsuit with merchants.
