A MOTO (Mail Only, Telephone Only) merchant account is a credit card processing account designed for businesses that accept credit card payments by mail/email (Mail Only) or by phone (Telephone Only) but not on a Website.

With MOTO payments, the cardholder provides their card details and authorizes the transaction in writing or by verbal consent.

MOTO payment processing account is considered high risk because the credit card is not physically present and someone besides the customer handles their card information. That makes these transactions more susceptible to theft and fraud.

Businesses that are classified as MOTO may still have an informational website, but will not have a shopping cart or checkout page.

As with all credit card processing accounts, it’s crucial to take steps to minimize chargeback activity by making sure the customer knows how to contact the company to report a problem, request a refund, or make a return.

A MOTO business should also expect their payment processing activity will be monitored by the processor to confirm that only approved products and services are being sold.

MOTO merchant accounts are available with most traditional processors. The application process may vary depending on the industry, but there are a few items that should always be included with an application for a MOTO merchant account:

    • A PDF of the authorization form and/or the phone script used for phone authorizations.
    • A marketing plan for how customers find the business.
    • A product price list.

Easy Pay Direct has paired many MOTO businesses with the right credit card processor for their business model and industry. Let us help get your MOTO merchant account set up today!



A merchant account is a specific type of bank account that allows merchants to accept payments. Typically, a merchant account is used for credit card processing and eCheck processing, but can be used for a variety of payment processing needs. To get a merchant account, one must submit an application with a merchant account provider.

These MOTO merchant account providers work with acquiring banks, such as Chase and Wells Fargo, to provide merchant accounts to businesses looking to process credit card payments.

There are multiple types of merchant accounts depending on how the bank categorizes the industry of the merchant. If the merchant account is used for card not present (CNP) or e-commerce transactions then it must be integrated with an online payment gateway. Otherwise, a physical terminal is required to capture payment information.


Easy Pay Direct works with all kinds of merchants, including, what the banks call, “high risk” merchants. These merchants happen to be in an industry that the banks label as high risk, which means that they have a higher likelihood of chargebacksdisputes, and fraud. The most common reason for this is card-not-present transactions, which present a higher risk of fraud. These merchants can have a particularly hard time finding a high-risk merchant account because a lot of payment processors refuse to participate in high-risk processing. Even if these merchants find a “high-risk payment processor” they can still frequently deal with holds or freezes on their money and shut down merchant accounts. This is where Easy Pay Direct saves the day by finding them a high-risk merchant account provider that wants to work with their business and providing them with all the resources to meet their high-risk credit card processing needs.



Easy Pay Direct provides merchant accounts specifically tailored to a merchant’s industry. We do this by leveraging our banking relationships to apply for merchant accounts on your behalf. However, we do not just apply for any merchant account, we use providers who want to work with your business model and underwrite their merchants. This is important because it lays out all the cards on the table and ensures that a provider gets to know who you are and your business model before working with you. That way, they know what to expect moving forward. This strategy guarantees that we find a MOTO merchant account provider that wants to work with you, making the likelihood of holds, freezes, and shut-downs, much less and providing a stable MOTO credit card processing.

Another benefit to this is you get to avoid the nightmare that applying for merchant accounts can cause. Not only do most merchant account providers do very little underwriting, but it can take many applications before you find a merchant account that is good for you. Each application that you send out hurts your chances of getting approved for the next because multiple applications make you look desperate to a provider that they perceive as high risk.



After we get you set up with your first MOTO merchant account, we recommend getting you an additional merchant account if you have over $250,000 in sales volume a year. This is to ensure stable payment processing. Even though Easy Pay Direct takes all the precautions to prevent you from experiencing a hold, freeze, or shutdown, we can never know how banks might act in the future. If they hire someone new or implement a new algorithm, your account could have action taken against it. In the event of this, if you have a second merchant account that is already up, and running and processing payments, you can pivot your revenue stream to this account and avoid holds, freezes, and shut-downs altogether.

Now all of this may seem complicated and a lot of work, and it would be if you were doing this on your own. However, if you are working with Easy Pay Direct, we manage all of this for you making your role in all of this very easyWe even assign you your very own Certified Payment Specialist (CPS), who will monitor your merchant accounts for you, giving you one point of contact for all of your merchant processing needs.
