'The obvious red flag is that the grandfathered options aren't going to hang around forever. They're blatantly a temporary customer retention strategy. Maintaining the existing payment structure for a subset of users means maintaining two independent processing structures.'
'Give it 12 months, they'll say "oh, 80% of users use the new system so we're just moving everyone because almost everyone already loves the new system!" and they'll consolidate. Again, why they didn't just go "look, this is what VISA charges us to process payments" in 2017 IDK.;
