Decoding the Code: What the Code of Conduct means for your business
The Code of Conduct for the Credit and Debit Card Industry in Canada
TD Merchant Solutions adheres to the Code of Conduct for the Credit and Debit Card Industry (the Code of Conduct) that was introduced by the Minister of Finance on May 17, 2010.
On April 13 2015, enhancements were made to the Code of Conduct which sets out several rights that merchants have in relation to their contracts and their statements for payment card processing services.
Effective March 2017, in accordance with the Code of Conduct enhancements made in April 2015, TD Merchant Solutions will provide merchants an Information Summary Box and Fee Disclosure Box outlining key elements of their Agreement.
