High-Risk Merchant Category Codes (MCC)
Merchant category codes (MCC codes) help define what category a business falls into based on a high-level description of the goods or services sold by the merchant. Some businesses can also be classified into what’s known as a high-risk MCC code that often requires special registration and additional monitoring from the credit card associations. The high-risk merchant category codes page provides a description of common high-risk MCC codes.
