Level 3 Transactions:
Improve B2B Credit Card Processing
Business-to-business (B2B) credit card processing transactions require a higher level of detail than business-to-consumer (B2C) purchases in order for businesses to effectively monitor and track their spending. Here, we’ll explore Level 3 processing, a type of B2B or B2G transaction that offers more detailed data for increased business management.
What Is Level 3 Processing?
Credit card processing can be broken into three different categories: Level 1 (Standard), Level 2 (Enhanced) and Level 3 (Enhanced Detailed). Each processing level involves transmitting a certain amount of data for verification and authorization. Card Issuers and Banks typically charge additional fees for increased data transmission. Check with you Acquirer for the added cost.
Level 1 processing refers to B2C transactions that occur when consumers use their personal credit cards to make purchases, and requires the least amount of data, including just the merchant name, transaction amount and date.
Level 2 processing involves B2B processing and includes additional information, such as tax amount, customer code and merchant postal code.
Level 3 processing requires the most detailed data transmission, including item product codes, item description, quantity, tax rate, discount indicator and more. Because so much data entry is needed to qualify for Level 3, the processing rates may in some cases be lower but require specialized and well-equipped software to handle this level of detail.
Improving B2B Credit Card Processing
With the amount of detail transmitted through Level 3 processing, businesses can closely monitor and track purchases made on the company credit card. This helps to minimize inappropriate spending, and allows businesses to see where their money is going and why. With improved control over the spending process, businesses can reduce costs and improve business operations.
