1 GLOSSARY OF MOST COMMONLY USED TERMS IN THE MERCHANT SERVICES INDUSTRY Acquiring Bank The bank or financial institution that accepts credit and/or debit card payments for products or services on behalf of a merchant. Acquiring Processor Provides credit card processing, billing, reporting, settlement and operational service to the merchant on behalf of the acquiring and issuing banks. Many financial institutions hire a third party for more cost effective bankcard processing. ABA Routing Number The nine-digit number assigned to individual banks to identify them. Address Verification Service (AVS) A system used to verify the identity of the person using the credit card. The system will check the stated billing address of the card against the one on file with the issuer. The response provides an AVS code in each approved transaction result that tells you how well the two addresses match. Merchants can use AVS codes to help protect themselves from potential Chargebacks and fraud. Application Programming Interface (API) Software used by an application program to request and carry out lower level services performed by a computer s or telephone system s operating system. API allows a merchant to add payment functionality to custom built websites or online applications. Approval Code A number issued to a participating merchant by the authorization center which confirms the authorization for a sale or service. The authorization code refers specifically to one single transaction for easy tracking and reversal of the transaction if needed. Associations (Card Organizations) Visa, MasterCard or any other brand in conjunction with which Card Issuers provide Cards accepted by merchant by agreement with the acquiring bank. The Associations license member financial institutions to issue cards and/or acquire merchants sales drafts under the Association s brand name. Authorization The act of ensuring the cardholder has adequate funds available against his or her line of credit at the time the authorization was requested. A positive authorization results in an authorization code being generated and those funds being set aside. The cardholder s available credit limit is reduced by the authorized amount. Automated Response Unit (ARU) Allows the manually keyed entry and the subsequent authorization of a credit card transaction over a traditional landline telephone or cell phone service. Please visit Merchant Services, Quick Links: QRG s for a printable copy. Batch A group of approved and accumulated credit card sales and credit transactions that have been captured but not yet settled. Most merchants settle or close their batches at the end of each day. Batch Deposit The electronic depositing of a batch file transmitted to the transaction processor for settlement. Glossary Of Most Commonly Used Terms 1

2 Business to Business (B2B) One business communicating with or selling goods and/or services directly to another business. This merchant category is different from retail where a business typically does business directly with consumers. Capture Converting the authorization amount into a billable transaction record within a batch. Transactions cannot be captured unless previously authorized and the goods or services have been shipped or transmitted to the consumer. This also includes funds received as deposits for goods or services. Card Associations (Bank Card Association) Payment networks that act as gateways between acquiring and issuing banks for authorizing and funding transactions, interchange settlements and fee processing. The two national and best-known Bank Card Associations are Visa and MasterCard. Card Code (CVV2) The card security code, sometimes called Card Verification Value or Code (CVV or CVC) or Credit Card ID (CCID). It is a security feature for credit or debit card transactions giving increased protection against credit card fraud. This code is often asked for by merchants to secure a transaction when the card is not present (CNP). These sales usually occur over the Internet, by mail, fax, or over the telephone. The payment gateway will compare the card code with the code on file at the card issuing bank. Results of this comparison will show in the transaction approval code. By using the card code results along with the Address Verification Service (AVS), you can make a more informed decision about whether to accept transactions. MasterCard, Visa, and Discover have a three digit code on the back signature panel of the card. American Express cards have a four digit code printed on the front side of the card above the number Card Not Present (CNP) Any number of payment transactions in which cards are not tendered. The card information is manually entered by the customer (online) or merchant over the telephone. These sales carry a higher risk and therefore are assessed a higher Interchange rate. Card Organizations Any entity formed to administer and promote Cards. The Card Organizations charge the Acquires interchange fees and assessment for submitting transactions into their systems. A substantial portion of the Discount Rate or Transaction Fees merchants pay will go towards these fees and assessments. Each Card Organization has developed Card Organization Rules that govern their Acquirers and Issuers and the procedures, responsibilities and allocation of risk for this process. Merchants are also bound by Card Organization Rules. Card Present A type of transaction in which the card is present and is typically swiped through an electronic device that reads the contents of the magnetic stripe on the back of the card. Chargeback A reversal of a credit card transaction (or a disputed portion) initiated by the card issuer at the cardholder s request. Chargebacks can occur for any number of reasons including; customer disputes, potential or actual fraud (on the part of merchants, sales associates and/or customers), processing errors and authorization issues. Chargebacks are governed by a complex set of rules and time limits that can be costly to merchants and their banks if disregarded. Check Conversion (Electronic) A check protection service by which a merchant scans a check image and converts it into an electronic transaction. Funds are debited from the customer s checking account similar to a PIN based debit transaction. Glossary Of Most Commonly Used Terms 2

Stipulations require that the merchant follow correct authorization procedures.

The DDA number (with a copy of the check) is required by processors for debiting and crediting a merchant s account. Daily Discount Method The qualified processing fees related to the discount rate are deducted from the merchant s settlement account on a daily basis. Additional fees associated with processing transactions are then deducted monthly along with creation of the monthly statement. Doing Business As (DBA) The name an individual, company or organization chooses to conduct business under other than their legal or registered name. Downgrades Occurs when the merchant does not meet the Visa /MasterCard requirements for a transaction and, as a result, the transaction is moved to a lower level and more costly rate of Interchange pricing. e-commerce (ECI) Consists of the buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems, such as the Internet and other computer networks (electronic commerce). Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) An electronic system that allow a government benefit recipient to authorize the transfer of their benefits from a federal, state or local government account to a merchant account to pay for products and services received. Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) A transfer of funds between one account and to another by electronic means rather than conventional paper based payment methods. EFT transaction can originate from a telephone, IP or electronic terminal, or from a computer or magnetic tape. Electronic Ticket Capture (ETC) A system that reaches out and "grabs" sales ticket information electronically. As the customer swipes or key enters a credit or debit card through a terminal the account information contained on the magnetic strip is read by the computer system and merged with the sales information. This information is then encoded and electronically sent to the processing system when the merchant closes the batch of transactions at the end of the day. Glossary Of Most Commonly Used Terms 3

4 Encryption The technique of scrambling data automatically in the terminal or computer before data is transmitted for security/anti fraud purposes. Face-To-Face (Card Present) Transactions that take place with the cardholder and merchant face to face. The cardholder typically swipes the card in a terminal. This type of transaction has the ability to qualify for a lower Interchange rate as it is considered low risk. Federal Tax ID Number (TIN) A number assigned by the federal government to a business for tax purposes. This is a required number for approval of a merchant processing account, unless operating as sole proprietors in which case a Social Security Number would be used. This number (TIN) along with the Tax Filing Name (TFN) must be validated with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for 1099K reporting purposes. Fleet Card Payment card designed mainly for fueling, maintenance and repairs of corporate motor vehicles. Fleet cards are normally used to provide specialized detailed reporting to businesses. Forced Transaction The after the fact entry of a transaction resulting from a referral (call to Authorization Center) message or a downtime interruption of service from a Network. The code given at the time of the call enables the merchant to manually enter the transaction and the approval code into the electronic draft capture (EDC) batch.

A payment gateway automates the payment transaction between the consumer and the merchant to their payment processor through secure Internet connections. Gift Card A reusable, stored value card that enables merchants to offer customers an electronic alternative to paper gift certificates.

(American Express ) for authorization, settlement and the passing through of Interchange and other fees, as well as other monetary and nonmonetary information related to credit card activities. Interchange rates vary widely based on card type, transaction amount, risks and retail sector. Interchange is assessed on all Visa and MasterCard branded cards, even PIN based debit cards. In certain circumstances Interchange flows in reverse, such as following a Chargeback. For a more detailed explanation please go to and use the search feature. Interchange Fee The amount paid by the merchant bank to the Cardholder's bank on each transaction. MasterCard and Visa independently establish interchange fees for their respective networks.
