High Risk Merchant Accounts & Processing

Secure, powerful payment solutions & card processing for high risk industries

Internet High Risk Merchant Accounts for Businesses & Entrepreneurs

Are High Risk Merchant Accounts what your business needs?

Businesses that need to obtain high risk merchant accounts or need a high risk payment gateway from high risk payment processors in order for them to accept credit and debit card payments find it much harder than regular online merchants.  In this case, you could benefit from the high risk merchant services provided by Nochex Payment Services.

A standard high risk merchant account will:
• Charge higher setup, annual and transaction fees
• Impose a longer settlement period
• Offer increased account security

The payments associated with these business sectors are deemed as high risk by banks due to the nature of the business, the business model, and the way the product or service is delivered or carried out.

This may also be the case if you or your business has a poor credit history. However, in this instance it’s likely that higher fees will reduce over time as long as you make payments on time to improve your credit.
