Do I need a website before I apply?

If you are applying for a virtual terminal only account (MOTO) then you do not need an ecommerce website. However we must have something to view to allow us to see exactly what it is you are wanting to take payments for and also how you advertise them on a website.

If you are going to be integrating your website then we will need to see the site on application. As above, this will help us determine whether or not we can help you or not. This does not have to be 100% complete however it must be real and not fake. In both instances a BETA or test site will suffice.Please also read about our 'Mandatory website requirements'
