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.
