Visa APIs for Merchant details

Hi,

I am working on a system where I need to parse the bank statements and identify the merchant entity and its category against which the transaction is made. Following are a few examples of data mentioned in the statements.

 

DNH*GODADDY.COM

GOOGLE *Google Storage

QUIZ MAKER

LINKEDIN-465*6869554

Amazon.com*MN6W18T02

ZOHO CORPORATION

SHEPARD EXPOSITION LOGIST

 

Based on this data, I tried to make API requests from Visa Developer Sandbox but most of the time the merchant information is not found. I could receive information for STARBUCKS, MCDONALDS etc but not for the others.

 

I need to understand how can I use Visa Merchant APIs to get accurate merchant details based on full or partial name of the Merchant.

Looking forward to learn.

 

Thanks and regards,

Chetan Ranpariya

Re: Visa APIs for Merchant details

Hi there @visadeveloper,

 

The sandbox is our test environment, and it does not generate real transactions. Sandbox data is limited and you cannot test real data in sandbox. Once you move into the production environment, you will be able to work with real data and generate real transactions.
