Getting Started with Issuer Measurement

About Issuer Measurement

Issuer Measurement lets clients access aggregated portfolio comparison data collected across the Visa network. It provides insight into how well your issuing portfolio is performing over time and in comparison to the market performance. For example, by using an aggregated and de-identified transaction dataset, you can compare payment volume growth against a benchmark of competitors.

Issuer Limitations

All users are limited to requests on portfolios with BIDs registered to their user.

Note: Wildcard inputs and regular expression inputs are not supported in the Portfolio Diagnostic API.

If the user does not enter one of the inputs, then the user will receive an error in the response.

Things to Know

Issuer Measurement can be used by developers in the sandbox. To use this API in production, clients must be pre-approved by Visa. This API licensing agreement and approval process is available as part of the production onboarding process and issuing clients can only access their own data. Use of the service is subject to the restrictions and other terms and conditions set forth in the applicable agreement.
