Mastercard is introducing two new fees as part of its Transaction Processing Excellence (TPE) program, which will apply to merchants if their processing activities trigger the fees, described below. As you develop payment solutions, please keep the following information in mind to ensure the processes you build are compliant with payment network processing rules. Here are some for tips on minimizing the activities that trigger the fees.
The strategies below can be implemented during development to help prevent the fee-triggering processing activities from happening, reducing the risk of incurring the fees.
As a reminder, application testing should always happen in the QA environment. Certain scenarios, particularly where multiple tests are performed on the same card, could trigger these fees if done in the Production environment.
For more information about the TPE program, go to “July and October 2019” updates on Moneris.com/PCNOfeeupdates.
