Unit of Measure Codes

The following is a list of valid unit of measure codes that should be used when sending in line item detail. Unit of measure may also be sent as an ANSI x-12 code but not all units of measure are valid for level 3 commercial card processing. For example, if AC is sent, ACR will be used for level 3 but if AG is sent, EA will be used for level 3 because there is not an equivalent Angstrom um.
