Is it better to use Paypal or get a 3rd party free merchant account if I have a high risk business?

Question by Joaquin M: Is it better to use Paypal or get a 3rd party free merchant account if I have a high risk business?
I have a growing high risk business. Do I keep on using Paypal or get a merchant account as my biz grows? Is it safer to opt for a 3rd party high risk merchant account provider?

  • As your buisness grows I would start looking twords the merchant account provider but one thing I believe is if it aint broke dont fix it. If pay pal is working for now why take an unnessassary risk.

    I use Pay Pal with my E-Bay account and find it so user friendly. Granted there is the possibility of disputes and it takes up to 4 days to have the money transferred to your financial institution but all in all, I find it quite handy.
