Is a wireless terminal for a high risk merchant account better than a manual imprinter?

Question by Ysabel K: Is a wireless terminal for a high risk merchant account better than a manual imprinter?

Best answer:

Answer by Marie C
Wireless terminals are more expensive than manual imprinters but are greatly useful to high risk merchants. They are efficient credit card terminals that let you know immediately whether a transaction is authorized or not. Manual imprinters are rather cheaper but work best with bulk orders.

What’s the average rate of acceptance for high risk merchant account applicants put under the TMF?

Question by Phoenix: What’s the average rate of acceptance for high risk merchant account applicants put under the TMF?

Best answer:

Answer by Merchant Helper
I’ll be upfront with you, its not good. < 1%. Processors take TMF's very serously and it is hard to place merchants that have been TMF'd. Its much easier to resolve the TMF, or in some cases reincorporate.

Answer by stymiee73
You need to use an offshore merchant account provider because the risk is too high for typical US based merchant account providers. A name I see repeatedly recommended for high risk products is CCBill.

Question by sean: Anyone knows what’s a high volume merchant account is?
It is considered a high risk account? If so, why? Your ideas will be truly helpful for my essay. Peace out!

Best answer:

Answer by shawnda
Hi sean!

A high volume merchant account is an account that allows you to have unlimited volume processing in a month. This applies to volume transactions not lower than $ 10,000. It is considered high risk mainly because of the fast and above than normal amounts coming in. Money-laundering issues come in. But, always, give the benefit of the doubt.

What is a high risk merchant account?

Question by : What is a high risk merchant account?

Best answer:

Answer by stymiee
Some businesses by their very nature have higher then normal chargeback rates. Sometimes this is due to the product or service offered by the merchant being in high demand but also being high priced (e.g. high end electronic, jewelry, etc.). Sometimes it is because the service causes customers to be misled whether intentionally or not (e.g. multi-level marketing schemes). Regardless of the root cause these businesses will usually find it difficult, if not impossible, to establish a merchant account.

The businesses considered to be high risk will vary from merchant account provider to provider. However, there are some businesses and industries that are consistently considered high risk. This list includes:

* Adult Book Stores
* Adult Entertainment
* Adult Novelties
* Adult Video Stores
* Advanced Sales
* Check Cashing Services
* Child Pornography
* Collection Agencies
* Credit Repair Services
* Dating/Escort
* Diet Marketers/Programs
* Exotic Dancing Establishments
* Multi-level Marketing
* Pharmacies (Card Not Present/Internet)
* Pornography
* Sexual Encounter Firms
* Telemarketing
* Time Share
* Travel Clubs/Tours/Guides
* Vacation Packages

For these businesses to accept credit cards they typically have to turn to high risk merchant account providers. These companies are typically off shore and always charge higher rates then traditional merchant account providers. Rates can go as high as 20% of sales and some may charge set up fees of $ 1,000 or higher. The reason why these rates and fees are so high is the high risk merchant account provider needs to make sure they make enough money to cover the costs of the high number of chargebacks they will receive.
