Visa announces new interchange rate for B2B merchants.
Business-to-Business: Transactions eligible for the B2B rate must be CPS qualified (not qualifying for Level 2 rates) and be processed by merchants operating in qualified Merchant Category Codes (MCCs). Transactions with the qualifying MCCs can be face-to-face or accepted in a card not present environment. Visa considered many factors when selecting the eligible MCCs including, but not limited to, fostering growth in under-penetrated market segments and providing a lower rate for merchants in these categories as they tend to have higher degrees of commercial spending versus consumer spending.
Visa will review MCC eligibility periodically to ensure that the appropriate categories are targeted and aligned with the goals of increasing Visa acceptance and fostering growth in Visa volume. The eligible MCCs for these B2B credit card processing interchange rates are?
