Working with The Right Bank or Multiple Merchant Banks
It is a fact that most banks will turn down merchant account applications from high risk merchants. They are fearful of businesses classified such those involved in online pharmacies, online websites, internet travel agencies, internet dating, credit repair, smoke shops, herbal and vitamins, timeshares, collection agencies, glass shops, high volume, high tickets, etc. Most Banks see them as financial risks that they are not ready to handle. This is the reason why companies like ProcessUSA offer credit card processors to provide opportunities to those who are turned down by traditional banks.
Merchants and businesses are classified and flagged as high risk because they have the great potential of falling victim to fraud and chargeback possibilities. This alone is reason enough for banks to turn down merchant applications. The following are some of the advantages provided by having a high risk merchant account:

Because these businesses mostly deal online, they have a special set of requirements, including accepting payments. This is the reason why businesses implement a comprehensive search to ensure that they find the right service provider.
When selecting a high a risk merchant account provider, small and big factors can affect the way you run your business. Look for a provider that charges reasonable fees. They should also set up the account fast and quick so you can use it immediately. Another thing you should look for is how established they are in business of providing merchant accounts. With ProcessUSA, we have been in the industry for a long time. This should be a guarantee in itself that your account is protected against fraud.
What To Expect when Applying
For merchants who run a high risk business, expect to be declined by banks offering merchant accounts. Because of the nature of business under the 'high risk' category, banks are aware of the many cases of fraud associated with such accounts. What these banks cannot offer you, we provide here at ProcessUSA.
With our merchant credit card processors, you don't have to worry about high fees from every transaction. Banks are known to suddenly grab an arbitrary amount of funds just to ease the bank's risky position. You will be capped on the amount of credit card transactions you accept. We have No Capped options so you are free to process as much as your business can grow. We also have "No Reserve" options for many business types.
High risk merchants are also expected to have a history of transaction in order to make their business less risky as time goes by. The merchant may negotiate an end of daily reserve requirements or a partial release of money already held against possible charge backs. This is the classic reward for a high-risk merchant who has worked at and succeeded at keeping the risky nature of their business in check. Basically, the high risk merchant account no longer seems risky.
Avoiding Termination / Cancellation / Being Denied or Closed
Once you have secured a merchant account for your high risk business, the next thing you will have to concern yourself with is to avoid being terminated. Being termination can mean an immediate loss of the merchant account and a freeze on all funds. There are some of the violations you should be wary of if you want to retain your credit card processors. Losing your high risk merchant account can do a very big damage on your business.
One way that can lead to termination is accepting a credit card purchase that is well over your average ticket. If the merchant account provider received a bill that is thousands of dollars over what you normally receive, this will sound alarm bells in their minds. There are instances where a merchant accepted a credit card purchase amounting to thousands and thousands of dollars when all he is selling are cleaning chemicals. Turns out, the merchant is really cars online. This situation is actually a double whammy because he is selling a product that is outside their normal business activity. This shows dishonesty on the part of the merchant and is clearly a violation of the agreement with the merchant account provider.
