Can I be a sole trader or individual?
Yes we can provide merchant accounts for sole traders or
individuals. However, you must have a business bank account
set-up and can not use personal ones. With our adult and
high risk merchant accounts, if you are a sole trader or
single share holder and wish to use a non business account
it must state own name t/a company name i.e. Fred Bloggs
t/a ABC Industries
Please be advised that if you are a sole trader it will
be your personal name trading as (i.e - John Smith t/a ABC
Industries) that appears on the customers statement. With
some of our High-Risk and Adult Merchant Accounts the message
that appears on the cardholder's credit card statement can
be chosen by you.
