High Risk Merchant Accounts

B.J. Kharrazi : May 20, 2013 1:13 AM : Blog

Trying to obtain a high-risk merchant account can frequently prove to be a challenging task. In addition to the fact that very few credit card processors are willing to work with high-risk businesses, the entire process can often be quite frustrating and time-consuming. One of the primary reasons that the application and approval process can be so difficult and take so long is the amount of risk the processor must usually take into account. Understanding that level of risk can help you to improve your chances of being approved.

As you may or may not already be aware, there are certain industries that are typically considered riskier according to credit card processors. Such industries often include adult entertainment, affiliate marketing, pharmaceuticals, outbound telemarketing, and gaming. One of the reasons such businesses are considered risky is the regulatory environment that surrounds such industries. The potential for merchant fraud can also increase the risk level associated with these businesses. Although this is not the case with all businesses, there are many websites that simply serve as fronts for operations that are illegal or restricted. In addition, the risk of charge-backs is also considered problematic. Finally, credit card processors are often considered about issues related to declined transactions. In fact, the rate of declined transactions can reach about one-third in many businesses.

When you are in need of a local Los Angeles merchant account, it is important to understand how to choose the most reliable service. Whether you are just opening your business or you are planning to expand in the near future, it is crucial to select a cost-effective, robust, and reliable option.

By understanding how to choose the best service, you can quickly narrow the options.

While it is important to shop around and find the most competitive rates, there are other factors that should be considered as well. For instance, among the most important variables to consider is the amount of experience the merchant service provider is able to offer. Experienced merchant account providers typically offer a higher level of security, risk and underwriting management in addition to technical capabilities and customer support. Many providers appeal to your desire to obtain the lowest price possible by offering rates that appear to be quite low. The problem with this is that many of these rates are not inclusive of all of the fees you can expect to pay. The merchant account industry can be quite competitive, but it is important to make certain that you do not choose a service that will lure you in with initially low rates that do not represent the true amount you can expect to pay.
