We rely on the Merchant Category Code (MCC) to work out whether you can earn cashback on a transaction.


MCC is a specific code given to merchants based on the type of things they sell. 


We don’t control what type of code a merchant gets given. So, in some cases, a merchant might sell something that seems eligible for cashback. But because of the merchant’s category code, the transaction isn’t eligible.
