Visa compliance and acceptance guidelines
Becoming a Visa-accepting merchant is a straightforward process, and we’ll help you succeed. However, there are a few requirements you’ll need to know:
- All Visa accepting merchants have a responsibility to adhere to all federal and state laws. As it relates to accepting Visa products, merchants must accept Visa products for legal transactions only.
- Merchants that sell age-restricted products, such as alcohol and tobacco, must have in place processes and controls to ensure that all associated laws are honored.
- Merchants should be aware that possession of a Visa card or submission of Visa account information does not signify that the cardholder is of legal age to purchase age-restricted products.
- The issuance of Visa cards is not restricted to individuals over 18 years of age
