High Risk Payment Solutions

Starting a new company or new business today can be very difficult at times. You might come across words or terms that you might not understand, especially if you are starting an online business (or e-commerce) or you may be classified as a high risk merchant and shut off by companies like paypal, square and stripe. One of the first things that you might want to do is accept credit cards at your place of business or online. This is called a merchant account. Basically, there are two types - swiped (for brick and mortar business) and keyed (for Internet businesses or telephone orders). An Internet merchant account costs a bit more money in terms of a discount rate because the risks of chargebacks is higher than a brick and mortar business. A good place to start is Some Basic Merchant Account Fees - this post will help explain some of the terminology that you might run into. A merchant account for brick and mortar businesses can differ from merchant account provider to another. Electronic Payment Gateways If you sign up for an Internet merchant account, you will need an electronic payment gateway to help process the transaction. This can be compared to a terminal in a brick and mortar store. An electronic payment is the virtual connectivity between your e-commerce website and the transaction provider which helps to facilitate the credit card transaction. Some of the well known electronic payment gateways include (but not limited to):
  • Quantum Gateway
  • eProcessing Network
  • Charge Anywhere
  • USE ePay
  • 2000Charge
  • Network Merchants Inc (NMI)
  • First Data Global Gateway (formerly known as LinkPoint / YourPay)

Internet Merchant Account

An Internet Merchant Account allows a merchant to accept and process credit cards on their website.  This is usually done in conjunction with an electronic payment gateway.  Most electronic payment gateways will offer the merchant an API to capture and process credit cards on their secure website or a secure URL on the electronic payment gateway's server to process the transaction.
