MasterCard and Discover minimum maximum transaction limits

MasterCard and Discover Card Brands Revise Minimum Transaction Amount Rules. Effective immediately, MasterCard and Discover announced a revision to their rules permitting Merchants the ability to set a minimum transaction amount of up to $10 on a Card Sale or Cash Advance when the purchase is made with a Credit Card (a card account that accesses a credit account) and does not differentiate between issuers or other card acceptance brands. Setting a minimum transaction amount limit for debit cards (Pin Debit or Signature Debit) is still prohibited
