Transaction Laundering Detection

World’s First TLD Solution


Merchant transaction laundering is the action whereby a merchant processes payment card transactions on behalf of another merchant (also known in the industry as “transaction aggregation”). It may trigger non-compliance as well as assessments for non-compliance with other rules, such as card acceptor business codes (MCC) miscoding violations or failure to register a high-risk merchant through the card schemes’ program.
