IG merchant category code (MCC)

Question

Hi,

does anyone know IG's merchant category code (MCC) ?

If I fund my account (spread betting or ISA) with my credit card, does the credit card provider classify this as a cash advance or a purchase?

Best

@DSchenk,

I don't know about the merchant category code for IG.

I think it is down to your credit card whether they classify it as a cash advance or purchase. I would check with them before funding your account.

Also funding with your debit card is free but check to make sure there is no additional charge for funding your account with your credit card. I know there is not with debit cards but do check.

@Telstra & @JamesIG,

I sincerely hope the TFN is not the Australian Tax File Number and following it is not the Medicare Health Number in Australia. Also full name has been provided and what looks like an expiry date of some sort. 

Please can this be removed immediately. @JamesIG, what happened to the button we could press to report such posts? I still cannot see it on my screen.

Thanks @TrendFollower

I will ask my credit card issuer, however, they are likely going to want to know the MCC of the merchant. Will give it a try anyway.

Will update here once I know more

Is there anyone who has ever tried funding their IG account with a credit card and can report if there were any additional charges?

looks like the report button is white (or a very very light grey). If you hover over the area just to the left of the 'share' icon you'll see it? Colour should probably be changed of course.

    • Dow's moving up this week  But it's got a long way to go before we see the highs we were earlier this year.  Was 22nd March the turning point for the bear?
