What does ”Enhanced Data Level” mean?

Enhanced Data Levels refers to Level II and Level III data; that is, additional transaction or customer information that a supplier may be capable of capturing at the point-of-sale (in addition to the Level I data captured by all suppliers). Not every merchant/supplier has the ability to capture Level II and Level III data, as it requires enhanced technology and point-of-sale equipment.

  • Fleet Purchase Detail data is captured on fleet card transactions and includes transaction line item data such as fuel type, fuel quantity, price per unit, and prompted fields like odometer reading and driver ID.
  • Level I data is captured on all transactions by all suppliers. It includes merchant name, merchant location, transaction amount, Merchant Category Code, and transaction date.
  • Level II data may include sales tax amount, sales tax indicator, customer code, purchase ID and/or purchase ID format.
  • Level III data is divided into two types:
    • Level III-Summary Data is summary level information that applies to the transaction as a whole, such as order date and invoice number.
    • Level III-Line Item Detail is detail information about individual line items, such as product code, description, quantity, and unit cost.
