Mastercard are in the "loan business". They make money on both ends of any tranaction but they make a killing on overdue accounts. Providing service is an expense not measurably related to revenue.I don't think Mastercard makes money on the lending, just on the transactions. The banks who back your card make the money on the overdue accounts.
