Level 3 Payment Processing Explained

Featured Video Play Icon

Level 3 Payment Processing is a more sophisticated way of accepting and processing government & commercial credit card transactions that involves providing Line item detail with your transactions——this in turn, tells the issuing bank what is being purchased, who is involved in the transaction, how the sale is taking place, and when.

To encourage merchants to provide this level of data, Visa and MasterCard created special interchange rates to support level 3 credit card processing. These special interchange rates can easily lower your cost of accepting Business-2-Business (B2B) & Business-2-Government (B2G) transactions by 30%-40%.
