Which account will accept my business model?


Having several merchant account solutions is good for choice, however we understand that it can be a little confusing because you know, or simply assume, that your business will fit one account, when in fact it turns out not to be the case. For example you could easily assume that 'pay day loans' would be under our high-risk account when in fact this is not actually the case - it's our Solution 1 that can help!


Why is this?

Basically it all depends on the bank we use and our own internal policies. Yes our high-risk account is more likely to take 'higher risk' businesses, however this doesn't mean they'll take anything. It's also means that even though you may class it as high-risk, we simply don't.

Below you will find a list businesses and the account we can help with

As you will see a business may appear in just one list or it may appear in all of them (giving you the choice of merchant account). As you can imagine we can't list every type of business there is, however these are the most common companies we help.

Please note that these lists are not definitive. Also; even though your business may appear, this does not necessarily mean that we will be able to provide an account as we need to assess each business model and each business owner individually.

Rejection of an application or other type of business

Web Merchant Services has the right to refuse the business of any potential or current customers for moral, ethical or any other reason(s). Even if the information they have supplied is true and complete. We retain this right if we feel that the customer and/or the information they have supplied is not what it appears. All rejections are sent via email once an assessment has been completed.

Disclaimer

In order to increase a merchant's chance of obtaining a merchant facility with one of our sponsor banks due to an applicants status and/or business model and following a full risk assessment of an application, we may need to increase certain elements: mainly the settlement period and the rolling reserve (other terms may be effected depending on the risk sector you operate in and your company’s credit rating). A longer settlement period and a larger rolling reserve are more likely to reassure our processing bank that we have taken sufficient steps to mitigate the risk exposure on an account.
