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.

Q&A: Do i need to apply for a high risk merchant account offshore when selling my online games (consoles, titles)?

by lisby1

Question by Drew H: Do i need to apply for a high risk merchant account offshore when selling my online games (consoles, titles)?

Best answer:

Answer by Phoenix
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.

Looking for a high risk payment processor (merchant account)?

Question by wicked_redhead3: Looking for a high risk payment processor (merchant account)?
I’m going to try and ask this question one last time. I am looking for a payment processor for a adult dating site. I have searched for weeks for one in the US and so far none that accept this type of business so I am now looking for payment processing companies in other countries. Please do not respond is you are doing a quick search and post a few names that show up. I have already done that. I am wanting to hear from people that use a company and can suggest a company that they use or have used with having no problems with them.

Best answer:

Answer by Robert
The only one that I know of is charge.com I have been recently looking for a high risk merchant payment gateway as well (though not for adult related industry) and aside from some offshore places, they were the only one that would take me on. I ended up forming another company that has absolutly nothing to do with my business and getting a merchant account for that company. Since my original company owns 51% of the new company, it is legal for me to use it to pull my payments.

Hope this helps.

Does Bellagio use the services of a high risk merchant account provider like online casinos?

high risk merchant account
by lisby1

Question by Phoenix: Does Bellagio use the services of a high risk merchant account provider like online casinos?

Best answer:

Answer by Lola J
Online casinos, unlike Bellagio and Caesar’s Palace, need to acquire casino merchant accounts offshore. Why? Because they will find it difficult to operate and handle all those credit card transactions without the help of a reliable payment gateway. Bellagio employs thousands of workers while an online casino may be manned only by a few staff. As long as it has an efficient high risk credit card processing infrastructure, it can easily match the profit that land based casinos like Bellagio can make. Not including the profit on hotel and attractions, of course. – This excerpted from an article I read: “Online Casino Merchant Accounts for Legit Poker Rooms”

Question by Dan: How do high risk merchant account providers assess the cost of setting up an individual merchant account?

Best answer:
