Internet Merchant Account Processors:
Merchant account processing services are provided by a bank or a third party processor to the merchant. These services include authorization of credit cards, settlement of funds through the bankcard associations (MasterCard, Visa, etc.), depositing of funds into checking accounts, merchant billing, and account activity reporting.
We currently deal with several merchant account processors. The one we recommend for you will depend on your particular business model. Please note that most merchant providers do not accept certain types of high risk businesses, such as online gambling, betting, porn, or sales of addictive substances. However, we have relationships with several merchant processors, so if one particular processor does not accept your business model, then we have others who will (although the set up and processing costs may be slightly higher for high risk credit card processing).
