Before the postal code is sent to the processor, all non-alphanumeric characters are removed, and if the remaining value is longer than nine characters, the value is truncated starting from the right side.
Visa Platform Connect
Credit card networks cannot process transactions that contain non-ASCII characters.
Visa Platform Connect
accepts and stores non-ASCII characters correctly and displays them correctly in reports. However, the limitations of the payment card networks prevent
Visa Platform Connect
from transmitting non-ASCII characters to the payment card networks. Therefore,
Visa Platform Connect
replaces non-ASCII characters with meaningless ASCII characters for transmission to the payment card networks.
