Some of these factors include:
Location of your Business
Product or Service Sold
Method Through Which Product/Service Is Sold
Type of Industry
Monthly Volume and/or Number of Transactions
Your customers aren't present to sign the credit card receipt. (Card-not-present processing.)
Your business is a start-up with an unproven credit history.
You or your business has bad credit.
You need to process a high volume of credit card transactions. (Over $25,000 a month.)
Your business has grown from small to medium or high volume.
Your business operates in certain "high risk" industries.
You offer a free or low cost trial followed by a recurring monthly payment.
Your average transaction is over $500.
You sell to international customers, or intend to process payments in foreign currencies.
You have a history of excessive chargebacks or refunds.
If a bank has closed your merchant account in the past; if you've ever provided contradictory information on a merchant account application; or if you've had problems with customer service or unclear billing descriptions, you may also have a hard time getting a merchant account.
As each of these factors influences the overall perceived risk within each potential high risk merchant account, some businesses are pushed into the High Risk classification. If your business is classified as high risk, don't think that this is the end of your business ambitions but an opportunity for your enhancing growth. P3MerchantSolutions is the place you should turn for your high risk merchant account needs. Our team focuses predominantly in understanding your business's needs, your operational structure, your payment acceptance needs, and how payment acceptance limitations can be overcome to acquire you the right High Risk Merchant Account. Whether you need a merchant account for a travel business, collection agency or any other legal business, we have the tools to get you the right high risk merchant account.
Example 1: A Vacation Tour Operator that offers pre-packaged vacation packages is typically classified as high risk. This is because the amount charges are for higher amounts and the service is considered "future deliverable". Since the vacation is weeks or months away, the customers financial situation could change resulting in a chargeback. Because of these three factors alone, most processors will not work with tour operators or travel agencies.
Example 2:A merchant who sells nutraceutical products online and ships it to the customer's home is typically classified as high risk. This is because neither the consumer nor the merchant meet each other in person, and so the probability of a fraudulent transaction increases. In addition, some customers may not experience the expected benefits of purchasing the product, and as a result may chargeback. As a result of these two factors alone, most processors will not be able to provide sustainable payment acceptance for this business. By reaching out to P3MerchantSolutions, the merchant is able to accept payments through a High Risk Merchant Account design for the business's needs.
Owing to the specialized needs of merchants classified as high risk, very few merchant account providers are able to effectively process payments for businesses in these types of industries. In addition to individual industry exposure risks, payment processors must also balance the industries, the transactions, and the risk across their entire client base in order to stay within the parameters set forth by the governing institution of the payment type. P3MerchantSolution's inherent understanding of risk balancing allows us to work with many industry types and place your High Risk Merchant Account with the right bank.
