3 MasterCard Modification of Network Access and Brand Usage Fee The Program: The MasterCard Network Access and Brand Usage (NABU) Fee of $ is a network pass thru fee assessed on authorized transaction records. The Change: MasterCard has increased the Network Access and Brand Usage fee of $ per authorized transaction record to $ The Timing: Effective July 1, 2013 the NABU fee is now $ The Impact: Merchants will see an increase in their MasterCard NABU fees. MasterCard Dispute Services Pricing Update The Program: MasterCard has announced a fee increase to services that support dispute processing. The Change: The new fees are listed below. The fees are assessed on the number of disputes and on documentation that can be exchanged between the merchant and cardholder bank during the dispute process. The Timing: The new fees are effective October 1, Category Current Effective 10/1/13 MasterCard Retrieval Request Fee $1.00 $1.30 MC Chargeback Support Document Fee $0.35 $0.45 MC Chargeback Assessment Fee $0.006 $0.007 MasterCard Documentation Image Fee $0.30 $0.45 The Impact: Merchants will see the updated fee amounts reflected on the October invoice. 3

4 MasterCard Modifications to U.S. Region Small Business Credit Card Programs MasterCard has announced several changes for their Small Business card rate programs. These changes will be effective July 18, Small Business Spend Processing (SBSP) Small Business Spend Processing (SBSP) is a new spend-based approach focused at the account level. Participation in SBSP is optional for issuers. If the issuer does not choose SBSP for a portfolio, that specific portfolio will default to BIN level processing based on the card product. MasterCard will perform quarterly qualification reviews to determine the interchange level for each card enrolled in SBSP. Transactions from Small Business credit card programs that utilize Spend Processing will qualify for any interchange structure based on each account s annual spend. Those that do not use Spend Processing will qualify based on product only as follows: Interchange Structure Spend Processing (Annual Account Spend Qualification) 1 Less than $25,000 Core 2 $25,001 - $50,000 World 3 $50,001 - $100,000 World Elite 4 Greater than $100,001 N/A Business Credit Product As a result of these changes, Vantiv merchants will see the following new rate descriptors on their interchange reports effective with the July release: Old Interchange Rate Descriptor MC COML BUS MC COML BUS WORLD MC COML BUS WORLD ELITE N/A New Interchange Rate Descriptor MC COML BL1 MC COML BL2 MC COML BL3 MC COML BL4 Enhanced Value for Small Business MasterCard discontinued the Enhanced Value program effective with their April release. Transactions on enrolled and eligible cards will continue to receive Enhanced Value interchange through July 17,

5 Visa Visa Recurring Payments Indicator Requirements Updated The Program: The recurring payments indicator (RPI) is a mandatory message field for recurring payments that must be populated in the authorization and clearing messages for all subsequent transactions in a series of recurring payments transactions. A recurring payment is a transaction in which a merchant is authorized by a cardholder to periodically bill their payment card for recurring goods or services (subscriptions, memberships). The Change: Effective immediately, U.S. merchants may populate the recurring payments indicator (RPI) field on the first of a series of recurring transactions. Because Issuers of non-reloadable prepaid card products are required to decline authorizations if the RPI is present, merchants may experience declines with the code 05-Do Not Honor on a non-reloadable prepaid card when populating the RPI field for the initial transaction in a series. Receiving a decline in this scenario potentially reduces the risk associated with future transactions, since the nonreloadable card may not have sufficient funds to cover the subsequent recurring payment. The Timing: Effective immediately. Retrieval Requests on Easy Payment Service Transactions The Program: Merchants serving the retail fuel industry should review the updated rules to ensure compliance. U.S. fuel-related merchants 1 are required to meet certain data requirements for Visa Fleet transactions. The Change: Merchants must be able to: Recognize a Visa Fleet card when it is presented at the point-of-sale, and provide complete and accurate enhanced data from the fuel transaction to their processor Correctly identify the service prompt indicator encoded on a Visa Fleet card magnetic strip and prompt the cardholder to provide the required data; then forward that information with the enhanced data from the fuel transaction to their processor. The Timing: October 1, Merchants in the following merchant category codes (MCCs) are affected by these updates: MCC 4468 Marinas, Marine Service and Supplies; MCC 5499 Miscellaneous Food Stores: Convenience Stores and Specialty Markets; MCC 5541 Service Stations (With or Without Ancillary Services); MCC 5542 Dispenser; and MCC 5983 Fuel Dealers: Fuel Oil, Wood Coal and Liquefied Petroleum Visa Chargebacks on Fuel Transactions In its continuing effort to reduce exceptions, Visa has introduced an edit on Dispenser (AFD) transactions that will reject an issuer s chargeback under the following circumstances: The issuer and the merchant are in the U.S. A status check of $1.00 was approved by the issuer The sale did not exceed $75 on a non-fleet card sale or $150 on a Fleet card sale The chargeback reason code was 72-No Authorization 5

6 Discover Discover Revises Surcharging Regulations Discover has clarified the conditions under which merchants may add a surcharge to card sales, specifically in regard to disclosure and inclusion of the surcharge on sales receipts. The surcharge allows a merchant to recoup the cost of acceptance for payment processing. The surcharge amount may not exceed the cost of acceptance for the card sale. Merchants must assess the surcharge on Discover card sales in the same manner as they would surcharge sales from other payment networks. Merchants will be required to disclose their surcharge policy at the point of store entry and the point of sale prior to the purchase transaction being completed. Merchants will be required to disclose the surcharge amount on the receipt. Several states have laws that prohibit or restrict surcharging. Merchants should consult legal counsel for review of state laws and how they may impact the ability to surcharge. Merchants that elect to surcharge must provide written notice to Discover and the merchant acquirer 30 days prior to surcharging. To notify Discover, the merchant should go to the Merchant section of DiscoverNetwork. com and select Contact Us. Note - These conditions, which became effective on March 22, 2013, may require system changes at the terminal or POS application. Discover Chargebacks for Non-Response to Retrieval Requests Effective April 2012, Discover amended the chargeback rules to allow Issuers to initiate a final and nonappealable chargeback for Failure to Respond to Ticket Retrieval Request (except retrievals for Good Faith Investigations). Merchants are strongly advised to always respond to retrieval requests with legible and complete documentation to avoid a non-reversible chargeback. 6

7 PIN Debit PIN-less Debit Update As the PIN debit market in the United States continues to evolve, debit networks strive to create new products and routing options for acquirers and merchants. The newest product facilitates PIN-less debit transactions at the point of sale. A PIN-less POS debit transaction is a sale for $50 or less that doesn t require a PIN or a signature from the consumer. Under current processing rules, those transactions would be routed as a signature or offline debit transaction. With the new product, those transactions can be routed to a debit network. There are two scenarios to PIN-less POS debit: The consumer would swipe his or her card. If the transaction is $50 or less, the transaction would automatically be processed without a PIN. If the transaction is more than $50, the PIN pad would prompt, according to the merchant s instructions. The consumer would be prompted to select Debit or Credit. If the consumer chooses the credit option and the transaction is $50 or less, the merchant or acquirer may route the transaction to a PIN debit network without a PIN. The card issuer retains liability for disputes, provided the merchant meets all requirements for PIN-less POS debit. For example, cash back is not allowed on a PIN-less POS debit transaction, if it was processed as such, the merchant could be liable for a dispute. 7
