Level 2 data
Understand Level 2 data
The Level 2 card data is additional information attached to a credit card transaction. It is recommended for established businesses with a requirement to process large volumes per transaction or a high number of transactions on a recurring basis.
See following endpoints when configuring Level 2 data:
Along with Level 1 data, such as personal consumer card transaction data, Level 2 data includes tax amount, tax indicator, tax ID, customer code, and shipping information. Different data is collected based on whether the card is American Express®, Mastercard®, and Visa®. You can add default values for Level 2 data when you set up purchasing card payments on the Web Dashboard. This data is auto-populated during the transaction.
Each issuing credit card company provides specific qualifying requirements. The credit card company accepts the enhanced Level 2 payment data only when the business meets the requirements.
