2018/2019 MAG Annual Sponsor Levels and Benefits

Our goal is to continue to provide you, our sponsors, with more opportunities to gain exposure to the MAG membership and to provide all sponsors with at least one opportunity to gain additional exposure each year.


The Merchant Advisory Group (MAG) was founded in 2008 by a small visionary group of merchants in the payments field dedicated to driving positive change in payments through multi-stakeholder collaboration. The MAG represents over 140 of the largest U.S. merchants which account for over $3.4 Trillion in annual sales at over 950,000 locations across the U.S. and online. Roughly $2.7 Trillion of those sales and over 73 Billion card payments are electronic which represents approximately 59%* of total U.S. card volume. MAG members employ over 12.5 million associates.
