High-Risk Merchant Account Provider

Whatever a business produces — branded t-shirts or software subscriptions — it needs a merchant account to process online payments. Nowadays, many payment service providers and banks offer
high-risk merchant solutions. Without them, high-risk businesses cannot process Visa / MasterCard credit and debit card payments.

High-risk payments: what’s wrong with them?

Though merchant application is easy, getting approved for a merchant account can prove to be a serious problem.
Luckily, high-risk processing always comes in handy for all those who get thrown overboard for no apparent reason.

High chargeback rates, large transaction volumes, and casual high-cost sales turn to be a real pain in the neck for high-risk e-commerce businesses. Since most of them work in highly regulated fields,
they run into problems when seeking reliable high-risk merchant solutions.

High-risk merchant solutions 101

Many merchants have no clue about specific traits that define high-risk payment processing. Let’s clear it up straight off the bat, determining what puts a ‘high-risk’ label on your business reputation.

Though criteria for evaluating
high-risk profile differ from one payment service provider to another, some factors are common for all parties.

  1. High fraud/chargeback rate. If your chargeback rate or level of fraud is a way too high, your business automatically falls under the high-risk category. This qualification depends solely on customer behaviuor patterns.
  2. Offshore business. If your business is registered in Cyprus, but you’re headquartered in Europe and work primarily with Canada, you may be also considered high-risk. The probability of fraud is a strong point here, but lax banking laws also matter, as they may put your business reputation at risk.
  3. High average purchase amount. Processing large B2B
    payment methods
    is no good for whatever business type. Just because high-cost credit card transactions are often associated with high-risk businesses.
  4. Services/products of doubtful legality. This factor is the most closely associated with high-risk processing. Businesses having any doubtful area of focus (e.g. selling nutra products or distributing adult services) are considered high-risk.
  5. Practices of questionable character. If your business is involved in any type of doubtful sales/marketing tactics, most financial institutions will consider it high-risk.
  6. Poor credit history. While the above factors all turn around your business, this one is different — it focuses on your personal credit record. If it is poor, you’re all likely to join the high-risk crew.

These are the most general criteria that may be used for evaluating your business reputation. Since the high-risk e-commerce landscape is changing and evolving all the time, it’s essential to keep up with the latest shifts in the law. Opting for a reliable high-risk merchant processing provider, you can leave such challenges behind.
