Your Payments. Your Language.
Opening a merchant account is a big step for your business, and with an industry this intricate, it’s natural to have a few questions. To help you get started, here are a few of the ones we get often:
A merchant account allows you to accept payments from credit and debit cards. A business must go through an application process in order to open one in which your financials and credit history are examined. It’s possible to work with a third-party processor to accept credit cards instead of opening an individual account, but without an account of your own, your options with equipment, rates, and funding are more limited.
Your agent provides personal attention for your merchant account. They help you set up the account and are your point of contact with the bank processor to deal with any problems that may arise.
Your merchant account can be up and running within a day of submitting your application depending on the business type and equipment.
