Straight Through Processing (STP) Remittance
Mastercard Straight Thru Processing (MC STP) is a value-added feature to Virtual Payments. The process is similar to ComdataDirect, but Mastercard will directly send the transaction information to the vendor’s acquirer. The acquirer will then generate an authorization request on behalf of the vendor automatically. With MC STP, vendors no longer need to enter each card number in their point-of-sale device to manually accept payments. However, a remit is still sent to the vendor with the information being paid, along with the last few digits of the card number (see example below). Contact your Comdata representative for more information.
