Merchant Account Connecting for ECommerce projects

August 31, 2022

Merchant accounts are needed to perform commercial activities – it gives entrepreneurs possibilities to receive payments, incl. cryptotransactions. Merchant account connecting is  competence of providers, who, among other things, act as operation processors, administer them and ensure the security of deals.

Merchant account opening

First stage is payment system and account registration. Trading accounts act as an intermediate “point” between consumers’ bank accounts and banking facility the firm uses to conduct operations. After account is registered, you’ll be able to receive payments via customer’s banking card.

Possibility of making operation is requested from the issuing bank of the client’s card. In most cases, a check is also carried out for the validity and authenticity of the operation, and authentication of account data. After all procedures have been completed successfully, money’ll pass to merchants.

Selecting provider that you will use for your commercial goals, do not rush to turn to very first inexpensive option, but take the time to analyze at least most of the offers in this market. If you need a high risk merchant account, keep in mind not all organizations work with this product. Those companies that provide these accounts may set other conditions for opening it: submitting a more detailed application, approval procedure may be longer and more difficult, and so on.

Things to consider choosing payment processing services

  1. Commission. Some firms implement fixed rates, others set a certain percentage depending on transaction amount. In addition, many firms have special conditions according to which merchant account holders must pay certain fees monthly and the like. The most important thing is to check if the provider has been found guilty of any hidden fees.
  2. What does the provider offer? Some firms have virtual terminals, POS and others, offering it for free. Other companies charge for the use of certain tools. There are providers claiming consumers to have a separate gateway through which operations will be processed for some extra fee.
  3. Simplicity and convenience in use. Trading services need to be readily integrated and used, have understandable software and have an online system that allows you to track commission fees.
  4. Testimonials from consumers already used the firm you selected. We recommend that you not only pay attention to the number of complaints from users, but determine the ratio of good reviews to bad ones.
