Golf Equipment Merchant Accounts

By January 18, 2019

With $6 billion spent on equipment, apparel, and supplies in 2016 alone and the number of new golfers rising in recent years—from 1.5 million in 2015 to 2.5 million in 2016—golf is a significant part of the US economy. While golf itself has been around for centuries, buying equipment online is a newer concept, and opening a merchant account to sell your products online is not always easy. This is where Merchant Service Group LLC can help.

Despite the influence of golf on the economy, online golf equipment sellers are still considered a high-risk venture to many large credit card processors because of a few factors; the high average price for each purchase brings liability, and it becomes riskier when customers experience buyer’s remorse because a golf club didn’t turn them into a pro like they had hoped it would. They may ask for a refund or even dispute the purchase with their credit card company. Additionally, processors are wary because golf equipment comes with a larger risk of shipping damage and fraud because of counterfeit items passed off as top name brands.

Despite all of this, Merchant Service Group LLC can board your online golf merchant account quickly and easily. We treat high-risk accounts like any other. We examine your credit history and the financial health of your business instead of scrutinizing your account based on the industry.
