What is community code?

Hi, I'm just starting out with the API. Thanks for the excellent resources and documentation.

 

I noticed that the attribute `communitCode` is critical to some of the API, yet I've been unable to locate a resource explaining what it is and/or how it can be retrieved.

 

Are they hard coded values respective to types of services or financial institutions? I don't even know if the code is a fixed or dynamic value, and what precisely the code relates to.

Hi Ricardo,

I'm looking to get real-time transaction information with VTA. Would this be possible without being the issuer, and how to get/set community code?

Hi Aug,

 

You can use the API in Sandbox, but in order to go into production VTA is only available for Visa Issuers.

Re: What is community code?

Thanks for your response. I'm trying to gateway services for my client who is a merchant, and will be servicing merchants. There's an authorization process between other merchants and customers, and it's desired to acquire the authorized customer-merchant transaction in real-time. 

 

Would you suggest your merchant-to-merchant services and/or API or would you suggest for my client to be an issuer?
