Did 2 transactions just now and both had Airtel Money as Merchant name and Razorpay as gateway, for the 2nd txn of ₹210 I opted for "Complete Payment on Bank's page" and there also AIRTEL PAYMENTS BANK LTD was showing so clearly the end of this trick.

I think you'll get the CB because yesterday I got the message for eligibility. Do the transaction and check the statement next month 😉

How u got to know MCC code?

Deal Cadet Deal Cadet
Link Copied
Since the merchant name is AIRTEL PAYMENTS BANK LTD, the MCC must be 6540 (wallet load, prepaid instruments, etc) or BFSI - 6010, 6011, 6012.

It's definitely not under Utility MCC anymore because for I am getting cb confirmation msgs on my Axis Ace for all transactions even for utilities.

If anyone has Millennia prepaid card here do try the transaction it the show the MCC code on screen.

Tried with almost all credit cards and same Airtel Payments Bank Limited is showing everywhere. One thing is clear for now that cards that give RP on Wallet Loads are useful now for this.

Also a TIP : Every payment gateway has a daily maintenance window, so the merchant switches to alternative one for that period (some hours)... try finding out that window for RazorPay... @KingRocks

Also, many subsequent failed transactions make the switch to alternative gateway sometimes...

Well, last day I did after 11PM for 100 and today after 10PM for 8900, got "AIRTEL" merchant id...
Today, after seeing your thread, had tried at different times of the day and got "airtel money" or "airtel payments bank"... So this is some circumstantial evidence to suggest something, right? (...gateway maintenance, remember?)

What's the easiest way to find mcc code of merchant? 

Deal Cadet Deal Cadet
Link Copied
Currently no bank displays mcc code while transaction, but have read somewhere in DD itself that HDFC Millennia Prepaid card shows MCC code on payment page.
That's the only way I know to find exact MCC code.
Other than that you can try with SBI / Onecard to see merchant type in Spend Analyzer.
