Subject: Re: [ubl-lcsc] Origin of CardTypeCode for Credit Cards
Is it important to know more than that a card is a debit card -- for instance if it is a Visa Debit card. If not, why wouldn't another "card type" of DebitCard be sufficient? ____________________ Alan Stitzer AVP Marsh USA Inc. 1166 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY 10036-2774 Phone: (561) 743-1938 Fax: (561) 743-1993 Internet: Alan.Stitzer@marsh.com ____________________ <<< Memo from firstname.lastname@example.org@Internet on 27 January, 2004, 23:49 Tuesday >>> email@example.com@Internet on 27 Jan 2004, 23:49 Tuesday To: ubl-lcsc cc: (bcc: Alan Stitzer) Subject: [ubl-lcsc] Origin of CardTypeCode for Credit Cards Stephen Green has raised an issue about the BBIE CardTypeCode The original intention of CardTypeCode was to denote the authority responsible for the credit card. It was taken from the CardTypeCode of xCBL3.0 which says... This code identifies the type of card used for payment. Value: Enumeration, including: * Other - Other Card Type * AMEX - American Express * VISA - VISA * MC - Master Card * Discover - Discover * JCB - JCB * Diners - Diners However, the definition for CardTypeCode "the type of card used for payment", could be misunderstood as being 'credit' or 'debit' card - this was not its original intent. So what is needed is better definition of CardTypeCode and perhaps a new BBIE for AccountTypeCode? My web research has revealed that the generic term for organisations in the enumerated list above is 'networks'. So perhaps the correct Property Term for this is Network, rather than Type qualified by Card (as it is at present). That is we have NetworkCode. But of course these are not really 'codes', to connect with another debate - these are identifiers. So another possibility is to call it NetworkID. This also complements IssuerID (identifies the organisation issuing the card). That is , we could have Network ID (identifies the organisation managing the interchange of payment information). any suggestions? -- regards tim mcgrath phone: +618 93352228 postal: po box 1289 fremantle western australia 6160 (See attached file: C.htm) To: firstname.lastname@example.org@Internet cc: (bcc: CN=Alan Stitzer/OU=NYC-NY/OU=US/OU=Marsh/O=MMC) From: email@example.com@InternetStephen Green has raised an issue about the BBIE CardTypeCode
