A system in which the transaction data from an Internet transaction is tagged with this indicator and sent on to Visa or Master Card. It is a requirement (October 1st, 2000) for all merchants with a majority of sales via the Internet to use an approved and ECI compliant payment gateway. Hand keying of credit card numbers in to standard credit card terminals would not capture and pass on the ECI, therefore this method is not compliant.
