Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I qualify?
  • To qualify, you must have annual location sales of <$50 Million and accept MasterCard cards. Otherwise contact us for more information.

  • How much does it cost?
  • To get you started, we are introducing Market Vision Report at $500 for a 12 month subscription per single business location.

  • Is this just MasterCard Data? How can you get this level of detail?
  • Through our experience helping merchants benchmark their performance across a variety of sectors, we have developed sophisticated models that enable us to scale MasterCard transaction data to accurately reflect all brands of consumer credit activity, and signature debit as well.

  • Is it relevant to my unique business? Can I define my competition?
  • We enable you to compare your location-level performance to a combined group of competitive locations that you select as your benchmark. You might be a consignment shop, an authentic ethnic restaurant, a specialty retailer, a high end salon: You can tailor your comparison group to be relevant to you. (We use benchmarking standards that combine locations so that the individual performance of a peer or competitor is NOT disclosed to you.)

  • How is this different than the information I get from other sources?
  • Your own sales data only tells part of the story. Industry sources are typically high level and not specific to your particular geography or peer group. Surveys are based on small samplings of subjective feedback. Market Vision Reports is based on actual aggregated payment data, providing measures such as Average Purchase or Ticket Size, Frequency and Number of Customers that help you identify and monitor the sales drivers you can improve. We provide the snapshot you need of precisely modeled customer feeder Zip Codes and customer segment demographics for you and your competitive set.

  • How is my data protected? How are you protecting other merchant's data?
  • MasterCard is committed to protecting the security, confidentiality, and integrity of the confidential data in its possession. MasterCard endeavors to protect such data and has designed an information security program to do so. For example, we establish a merchant’s right to see its own performance data by ensuring we contact the merchant at its official address by mail, or by other means to authenticate such merchants, and we provide a secure PIN code to enable access to the first report for each business location. Moreover, all information we provide in the Market Vision Report is aggregated to avoid disclosing any information about any other individual merchant or about any consumer.

  • When is the report available, and how is it delivered?
  • We are offering a monthly report reflecting the prior 3 months of data. We also provide information on trends versus the prior year. New reports will typically be released on or around the 15th of the month. You will access your report online as a downloadable PDF.
