Why Use It?
VisaNet Data Services gives users the most up-to-date information available to ensure processing integrity. APIs are easy to integrate and reflect the most current data available to VisaNet.
How Does It Work?
VisaNet Data Services APIs allow users to access to reference data needed to interpret Visa clearing information. APIs allow users to access the most current information used by Visa to identify details of transactions. Approved users first query individual elements such as Merchant Category, Country, or Currency codes and the APIs return corresponding details. Results can be used to create mapping tables and for further processing. Alternatively, entire reference tables can be returned through the API.
Country Code API
Lists the designated country code for every country name. This information helps in determining where transactions occur and in distinguishing between domestic and cross-border transactions for the proper assessment of fees and charges.
Currency Code API
Lists the designated currency code for each country. This information helps identify the monetary value of transactions and to ensure the proper assessment of fees and charges.
Merchant Category Code API
Lists the four-digit Merchant Category Code (MCCs). The MCC corresponds to a description of the merchant’s primary business and is used in determining activity for different merchant segments.
Chargeback Reason Code API
Lists all of the BASE II chargeback reason codes.
Transaction Code API
Lists all of the transaction codes that are accepted for interchange qualification.
