You don’t need to if you don’t intend to increase the monthly volume of your sales. Many gaming vendors feel the need to apply for a high risk merchant account because they transact high volume sales as their businesses grow. Also, due to the nature of the business, they find it difficult to get accepted in the local banks’ merchant services. If you find that an offshore provider works to your advantage then you should apply for one.

  • Gaming sites fall under the high-risk category, which makes it difficult to apply to most local banks. Offshore merchant providers are just easier to work with when it comes to things like that.

    You might want to try my provider emerchantpay.com. I have a gambling site and I’ve never experienced difficulties with them.
