Datamonitor has identified cards targeted towards women in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, India, China, Japan and Philippines. Most of these card offerings have been launched in the last five years. Cards targeted toward women differ from standard cards in terms of design, loyalty schemes and benefits. In the wake of the RBA interchange reforms of 2003, Australian credit card issuers were challenged to find a new business model. As interchange fee income was reduced, card issuers responded by cutting back on loyalty schemes and offering low rate cards to compete. All else being equal, the more cards a cardholder holds the more important low annual fees are. Also, annual fees are more important for transactors, as fees are unavoidable unlike interest rate payments. Another disadvantage is that low fee cardholders may be less likely to ever use the card at all.
