Taking advantage of the Visa Supplier Matching Service is convenient and easy. Here are the basic steps of how the APIs work:
You can match your supplier information to the Visa commercial merchant database using the supplier name, address and other key datapoints. The API leverages matching algorithms to identify the best possible match.
- Receive Enriched Match Results
You can receive back an indicator of which of your suppliers matched to the Visa commercial merchant database, those capable of providing enhanced data and their related merchant category codes (MCC). Records returned are from highest to lowest match confidence. The match confidence is calculated based on the number of search criteria that matched.
