Are E-commerce Retailers “High Risk”?

Many internet merchants don’t realize that traditional merchant credit card processing banks may consider their businesses to be “high risk”. These banks recognize the high risk characteristics of e-commerce businesses, and therefore may deny traditional merchant accounts to internet merchants.

Common High Risk Characteristics of Internet Merchants
An important fundamental characteristic of internet merchant businesses is that, unlike merchants with a ‘brick-and-mortar’ physical storefront or even MOTO retailers, internet merchants cannot physically validate their customers’ identification.  This puts them at a higher risk for customer fraud or even customer chargebacks where merchandise is not returned.

Following is a list of some of the business characteristics or practices that may cause an internet merchant to be classified as a high risk merchant:

  • Internet merchant customers aren’t present to sign credit card receipts (card not present transaction). Therefore, there is a higher risk of credit card fraud.
  • Internet businesses that process a high volume of credit card transactions. (Over $25,000 a month.)
  • E-commerce merchants that sell to international customers, and therefore require multicurrency processing
  • Online businesses that offer free trials followed by a recurring monthly payment. This revenue model is considered high risk by banks, as many subscribers will cancel their subscriptions following free trial periods or demand refunds.

MerchantWorthy.com specializes in high risk merchant services for internet merchants, including internet merchant accounts and website compliance consultations. Stop dealing with traditional banks and contact MerchantWorthy.com’s expert team at 800-357-0001 for fast internet merchant account approval!

Internet Merchant Account Characteristics

All internet merchant accounts are capable of accepting credit cards over the Internet thanks to shopping cart software and payment gateways. Shopping cart software allows online retail customers to select products for eventual purchase, even allowing customers to accumulate multiple items prior to checkout. Payment gateways are e-commerce application service provider (ASP) services that authorize credit card transactions for internet retailers. Both shopping cart software and payment gateways are essential for internet merchants to conduct business.

MerchantWorthy.com is familiar with more than 250 e-commerce shopping cart and storefront software systems that are compatible with the e-processors.
