Aug 25, 2009 (10:08 AM EDT)

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Network Merchants Inc (NMI) today announced the launch of Level III Processing, which enables merchants to pass extended transaction data required for certain industries and card qualifications.

Level III Enhanced Data Processing is used by Government and large corporations to make business-to-business and business-to-government purchases. Merchants can use this enhanced data to better understand purchasing patterns, improve purchasing performance, and monitor employee compliance.

NMI's Level III service offering includes a fully functional API (Application Programming Interface). "The Level III API significantly increases the amount of ancillary data that can be saved with a payment transaction," said Matthew Schmidgall, NMI's Chief Technology Officer. "Not only will merchants appreciate better discount rates but the powerful Network Merchants data engine gives them the ability to retrieve this extensive data about their transactions any time in the future," Schmidgall added.

In addition to Level I data - account number, transaction date, purchase amount, supplier category code, supplier name, city, state, and ZIP code - Visa and MasterCard provide enhanced data on purchases of goods and services.

"The advantages of accepting purchasing cards are compelling for level III processing and one major advantage includes significantly lower processing fees," said Ted Cucci, NMI's Chief Operating Officer.
