EVALUATING HIGH RISK CREDIT CARD PROCESSING
A company whose business is processing
of credit cards helps you to accept
payments from your customers through
credit cards for the several products or
services offered by you. It also helps
large business houses to empower their
clients or customers to make payments
for the goods they have bought using the
Most of these companies are mostly local
banks that have a bank account of the
business people. Also, they can be trade
associations or third party credit card
processors. Credit card is also a very
safe and secure mode of payment. The
companies help you to set up an account,
billing and also sending reports for
each transaction which happened between
the company and the customer. To get
qualified for a merchant account the
business line of the company and also
the credentials will be examined.
The credit history will also be checked
from banks and other reliable sources.
The rates will be calculated after going
through the firm’s revenues, turnover
and business standing.
Those companies that are not established
as yet will be charged with a higher
rate than the established companies.
However, if the payment track record and
the financials of the company are good,
then they can negotiate for a better
rate on the merchant account.
Evaluating businesses is a huge task and
can be highly frustrating as it may or
may not lead to financial losses before
or after giving permission to open the
account. If it is a start up business or
a high risk trade, then the chances of
getting an approval for the merchant
account are very slim as most of the
banks do not take suck risks. Then you
will be left with no choice but to use a
“third party credit card processing”
After this, the issues related to
security will come up. Credit card fraud
is very rampant every where and steps
should be taken to stop the menace. With
all the points in mind competitive and
good “credit card processing companies”
must be chosen. You do not have the
choice of backing away from the decision
of accepting credit card payments as you
will loose your customers.
Evaluation of “Credit Card Processing
Companies” should be based on:
Number of payment modes offered by
the company such as regular checks,
e – checks, debit cards and all the
major credit cards.
Transactions should be processed
through the internet.
High security and protection from
fraud for all transactions by the
use of technology such as “Address
Verification Service” or AVS and
“Verisign SSL Certification”.
Competitive fee structure with
A low monthly cost should be charged
which helps in reducing the overhead
costs of your company.
Set up and payment gateway charges
should be very competitive.
The setting up of the account should
be done as soon as possible so that
the merchant can accept credit card
payments very soon.
