Level III Processing Explained, use this information to reduce the cost of accepting B2B and B2G credit card transactions.

Visa and MasterCard apply a surcharge for B2B & B2G credit card transactions processed without level 3 payment detail.

Visa & MasterCard use interchange rates to determine how much you pay to accept a credit card.  For business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-government (B2G) purchases, these interchange fees fall into one of 3 processing categories — Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3. Level 1 has the highest rates. Level 3 has the lowest rates.

Level III Processing Explained and what is it?
It means passing line-item detail; information generally found on an invoice; PO number descriptions, quantities….other details. When Level 3 processing information is included with a payment, the transaction qualifies at level 3 interchange codes, lowering your cost by 30%-40%.  This happens before your processor adds their fee.
