Opening a merchant bank account should be simple. After all, merchant account providers will cash money every time you process a transaction. They should be happy to work with you, right? If only it were. The payments industry is very competitive, and merchant account providers obviously want to work with you – but they need to know your business well before accepting your request. In this article, we will tell you exactly how to get your merchant account application approved, and what to do if it is denied.

Since the payments industry and the jargon used are quite complicated, we will also define some of the most commonly used expressions, such as merchant account, payment gateway, and high risk merchant processor. If you already know the basics, feel free to skip the definitions.

What Is A Merchant Account?

A merchant bank account is a special bank account used to hold funds captured from sales made by credit or debit cards. If you’ve used your card before, and wondered where the funds went, they’ve just been transferred to a merchant account. Then they are transferred to a normal corporate bank account, usually on a weekly or daily basis. It is also important to note that a merchant account is a legal agreement between you and the supplier. You will receive general conditions of sale and use and a contract to sign. Here are some things to look for before signing a merchant account contract.

What Is A Payment Gateway?

When processing a credit card transaction, information must be sent somewhere to verify that the card holder has enough funds to pay for their purchase. When it is a transaction carried out in a traditional physical company, it is the POS system (point of sale) which collects the data of the card holder, which formats them, and which sends them to Visa or MasterCard to see if the client has sufficient funds.
