Do You Need a High Risk Merchant Account?

High Risk Merchant Account

What some may not realize is that, in recent years, entrepreneurs all over the map have become increasingly threatened by the reign of credit card processing companies over their business. What’s more is that if your company finds itself among the many to be constituted as a “high risk merchant”, then you are even more vulnerable to a slew of credit card processing hindrances that can be catastrophic to your company.  If this happens, you will need to find a high risk merchant account.

So, what exactly are these high risk merchant accounts?

What’s tricky about this terminology is that many businesses out there aren’t perceived, nor do they perceive themselves, as high risk at all – in fact, many may largely be considered down right secure. Unfortunately, credit card companies have their own definition. The major card brand associations (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Amex, JCB) define a business as high risk if that business is predicted to have as little as 1% or more of their customer/client charges disputed.

That encompasses a lot of businesses.

Chances are this sounds like you. If so, then this matters so much because when you signed your contract with them, you essentially afforded your credit card processor ultimate control over your account. The general terms of that contract will vary, but somewhere in there you are guaranteed to find that all processors are granted the rights to hold your funds, adjust your rates and fees, and deposit/deduct funds — all without warning. Even if you’re working for a reputable company, as a high risk merchant you’re highly susceptible to business-threatening situations such as: having your account frozen; a reserve imposed without notice; and/or your account being closed altogether. As alarming as this potential may seem, it’s the only way a credit card processing company can protect itself — and it’s exactly why you need to be confident you’re protected as well.

A skilled high risk merchant account provider is that protection.

    I’m very happy with the service I’ve received with Easy Pay Direct. They’ve been great. I presented them with the challenge of getting my merchant account set up in about a week before my first home show. They pulled it off with flying colors. They even overnighted my card slider to my hotel so I had it at the show. I sold a commission from the show and I was able to run the charge without a hitch. Ted was a great help throughout. I highly recommend Easy Pay Direct.”
