Level 2 and Level 3 Data

The more data you pass with a commercial transaction, the lower the interchange fees that apply to that transaction.

Commercial cards are eligible for level 2 (Business, Corporate and Purchasing cards) and level 3 (Corporate and Purchasing cards only) rates, but may be charged at level 1 rates if you don’t provide all the required data. Consumer cards are only eligible for data level 1.

For Level 3 support please contact your solution engineering point of contact.

Important: Along with Level 2 and Level 3 Data, cardholder ZIP code should always be submitted along with card data for full AVS and interchange qualification. See the Secure Fields section on how to include cardholder ZIP code data.
