I'm new to Visa developer center. I'm trying to create a project where I query the Visa database using merchant ID.
I have a few doubts regarding the merchant ID. I've searched over the internet but it seems to make me more confused than solving my doubts.
- Can a merchant have different merchant IDs? (Search results tend to say yes.)
- If the merchant can have multiple IDs, is there anything that is uniquely identify a merchant?
- Can Visa and Mastercard have the same merchant id for an individual merchant or different id?
Any help is much appreciated!
Thanks for your inquiry. To serve you better , can you please let me know which API are you planning to use ? is it Merchant Search, Locator or Measurement or any other API, so we can look into this further.
Thank you !
Im actually using both Merchant Locator as well as Merchant Search. Any explaination is appreciated.
