Merchant endpoints retrieve transaction details such as: cleansed merchant name, merchant categories, and links to download merchant logos, top-level category icons, and MCC icons (if available). Please see our list of sample transactions for documentation or testing purposes.
Differences between v1 and v2 endpoints.
The V2 endpoint
- Does not require an MCC in the API request
- Provides a cleansed transaction description in every API response
- Enhanced AI similarity merchant matching is applied
- Post accepts parsing parameters
- AI matching is deployed
When working with fixed-width strings, parsers offer a method to consistently identify the merchant name, city, state, country and custom attributes within each string to improve match accuracy. Use of parsers is optional and not required.
