You can retrieve the list of Merchant Category Codes, which are pre-approved for your use. When onboarding a new Sub-merchant, a Payment Service Provider should only use one of the approved MCCs, appropriate to the Sub-merchant. To retrieve the allowed MCC list perform a GET operation, specifying the legalEntityId with the parameter mcc. In the case of a request to retrieve the allowed MCC list, the system does not require an accompanying XML message

 

Should you anticipate the need for new or different MCCs beyond those approved, please contact your Customer Experience Manager or our Underwriting team for additional information.
