The Merchant Acquirers’ Committee (MAC) is an organization of payments professionals dedicated to protecting the integrity of the payments ecosystem. Our members include acquiring banks, ISOs, the card brands, NACHA, law enforcement agencies, payment processors, and payment facilitators. MAC’s mission is to strengthen the payment ecosystem through ongoing education, communication, and cooperation among its members.
MAC assists its members with managing risk and preventing fraud by providing a communication channel to encourage ongoing networking, benchmarking, and information sharing among its members. Membership in MAC provides the value of sharing best practices, discussing current fraud trends, loss mitigations, and the opportunity to receive educational materials and share information within this payments peer group.
MAC communications provide pertinent and timely information about the industry. Members receive communications regarding suspicious or problematic merchants as well as articles and information to keep members up-to-date. MAC provides exclusive networking opportunities not available elsewhere in the industry as well as member contact lists and access to the MAC website.
