Merchant Category Codes (MCC)
A merchant category code (MCC) is a four-digit classification code used to describe a merchant’s business type, transaction type, or business name. For example, MCC 0742 is used for any merchant providing veterinary services. Other MCCs are used by a single business, such as 3000 for United Airlines.
If a merchant sells multiple items or services, the MCC will describe the item or service that has the highest annual sales volume.
