Credit Card Merchant Accounts?

Question by DMG: Credit Card Merchant Accounts?
I recently submitted an application for a business credit card merchant account. It is an existing business with an existing merchant account with another company. This new provider wants me to give them my social security number even though the company has its own EIN/tax ID. Why would they want my social? Does this open me up to financial liabilities of the company? I know if they hard pull my credit information, this has a negative impact on my personal credit rating. The other option is to jump through hoops of sending several years tax returns and months of bank statements. What is the best course of action?
We have been in business for almost 7 years so it is not from lack of history.
This is not for a business credit card, it is for a merchant account to process credit cards.

Best answer:

Answer by RIP LUCY
Just give them your social. Sounds like they will approve your application, based upon your credit. One inquiry isn’t that harmfull and this way is way easier.

e-commerce merchant account shopping cart question?

Question by lindsay g: e-commerce merchant account shopping cart question?
If i set up a merchant account, will I get software to put a shopping cart in my site? i built my site with dreamweaver, and they have a shoppingcart, and i use hostmonster.com for a host and THEY have a shopping cart/merchant account package… but i also have a friend that sells merchant accounts.. what should i do>???

Answer by drachma
This is a complicated question —
It depends on the merchant account package.
Sometimes the merchant account gives you access to eCommerce packages i.e. Miva Merchant or open source osCommerce. You get full functionality but will not have the ability to customize it fully – but some you might.

Some times merchant accounts only provide SSL and ability to install shopping carts easier…through 1 click button as opposed to your own installation.

My advice is get to know eCommerce packages if you’re going that route. Any web host can add SSL and you yourself can install packages like Miva/osCommerce/XCart/ZenCart etc…

Get a Merchant account only if they take care of software installs, upgrades, etc. Or better – go with an e cart solution like goecart.com for example.

Hope that helps.
