Retail Merchant Accounts

Retail merchant accounts are for those merchants who have a physical store front or for those merchants who will be in a face to face environment with their customers and will be able to accept card present transactions. This is the least expensive type of credit card processing as it is the least risky due to the fact that the card is physically present at the time of the transaction. With retail merchant accounts, the merchant usually purchases a credit card terminal or point of sale system where the card is either swiped or keyed and the system will automatically batch out and transmit data to the merchant account provider at the end of every business day. Retail merchant accounts are fairly easy to set-up and only require a merchant account application, copy of drivers license, copy of void check for business account and copy of business license.

High Risk Merchant Accounts

High Risk - A high risk merchant is usually defined by one of the following: type of industry, credit history, processing history, average ticket, monthly processing volume, location of business. If a merchant is defined as being high risk, it may be more expensive for a merchant account to be placed due to the processing bank that the merchant is placed with. For some high risk industries, Visa/MasterCard requires that the merchant pay a $2000 high risk registration fee. Business that is considered high risk include adult content, magazine subscriptions, streaming or downloadable content, gaming, dating services, travel and travel related services, etc.

Internet Merchant Accounts

Online or Internet Merchant Accounts - This gives a merchant who has an internet business the ability to accept credit cards via their internet website or shopping cart. Accepting credit cards online allows a customer to enter their credit card information from the comfort of their home computer and the data is collected securely and passed through a payment gateway into the internet merchant account and then deposited into the merchant's business bank account. The rates associated with an internet merchant account vs. a retail merchant account are slightly higher due to the not-card-present environment. The interchange rates charged by Visa/MasterCard are higher for the this reason. Application requirements include application, copy of void check for business account, copy of drivers license, and business license.

Offshore Merchant Accounts

Offshore merchant account - Typically an offshore merchant account is a term used to reference a merchant account that is obtained by a merchant that falls outside of underwriting criteria that is acceptable by domestic banks. These criteria may be type of business, chargeback ratio, terminated merchant file listing, adverse history with Visa/MasterCard, etc. If a merchant is seeking an offshore merchant account, there are usually high fees, large reserves and large amounts of documentation required. We would need to do a review of whether the business would be acceptable to our offshore banks through a series of q & a with the merchant.

International Merchant Accounts

International merchant accounts - Any business that has ownership in a country other than the U.S., should purchase an international merchant account. We offer several different options for international merchants. Underwriting criteria for international merchant accounts would include length of time in business, processing history (if applicable), type of business, average ticket, monthly processing volume, financial stability of the merchant, personal credit of ownership, and various other factors. The merchant would need to submit the application, proof of identity, previous processing history, previous bank statements, and additional documentation requested by the underwriter at the time of application.
