Misclassified MCC Codes = Misclassified Risk

merchant category codeMCCs are used to classify a merchant type by the goods or services they provide, e.g. book stores, florists, etc. Merchants choose their MCC code, but financial institutions hold the ultimate responsibility for ensuring those codes are correct.

  • 7801—Government-Licensed Casinos (Online or Internet Gambling)
  • 7995—Gambling Transactions Betting (Sportsbook, fantasy, social gaming; when regulated and not covered by other MCCs) (D)
    or
  • 9754—Gambling-Horse, Dog Racing, State Lottery

  • Terminate prohibited businesses
  • Segment merchants in your portfolio by risk level
  • Reallocate your personnel’s time to more strategic functions
  • Provide independent, third-party proof to auditors of the merchant MCCs in your portfolio
