  • There are three MRC membership categories: Merchants, Solution Providers, and Industry Partners

    Merchants are companies that sell goods, services, and products to end consumers. Merchant Membership can also apply to companies that act as a Merchant of Record.  

    Solution Providers members provide fraud prevention mechanisms or are a part of the payment ecosystem that enables the completion of eCommerce transactions. In short, they support eCommerce organizations by securing organizational profitability, reducing risks, and defending against eCommerce fraud. 

    Industry Partners are broken into three categories: Ancillary Services, Law Enforcement, and Issuers.  
    Ancillary Services are companies that provide industry-related consulting services and do not sell in-house payment, risk, or security solutions to merchants. 
    Law Enforcement refers to government-run agencies responsible for investigating and enforcing eCommerce crime laws.  
    Issuers are financial institutions offering one or more branded consumer payment methods to transact with eCommerce merchants in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. 

    Each of the three membership types offers multiple membership benefit levels. For assistance with selecting the appropriate membership level, please get in touch with the membership team at membership@merchantriskcouncil.org.
