High Risk Credit Card Processing

If you’ve already spoken to a credit card processing provider you may already be aware of the challenges facing your business.

Even though your business provides a valuable service to betters and gamblers and has little to do with gambling itself, it is classified as high risk just like gambling sites and institutions.

It’s hard enough for a high risk industry business to get approved for a ‘card present’ or customer facing domestic merchant account solution. An approval for a ‘card not present’ solution, as is the case with online sales, can be nearly impossible.

What’s the reason for this? Mainly, the risk averse nature of most merchant services companies.

Businesses like yours that sell non-tangible goods or services online historically face higher chargebacks by customers that feel they didn’t receive what they paid for.

Unfortunately it’s very difficult for any of these businesses to defend themselves against customers that feel that way or that may be playing the system. Banks almost always side with the customer.

While it may seem that chargebacks only negatively affect the merchant, the fact is that they also negatively affect the merchant account services provider. Providers can be monetarily penalized by the credit card brands for having merchants with chargeback ratios as low as 2%.

With this risk thrown into the mix, it’s easy to understand why merchant services providers avoid high risk businesses altogether.

The Transaction Group for Your Business

TTG has been assisting businesses around the globe with payment processing needs since 2004. And when it comes to high risk, we are the experts.

There are some offshore providers that willingly offer merchant account services to gambling advice and betting tips businesses. However these offshore solutions are very risky for merchants.

Aside from the high rates and withholding of up to 25% in reserves for 6 months or longer, some of these offshore providers have been known to shut down accounts without notice and hold a merchant’s funds indefinitely.

Before you contact any other providers in your search for a credit card processing solution, you’ll want to talk with us first.

At TTG, we will save you time and frustration by delivering you the best payment processing solution for your business’s needs.

Through our many banking relationships, we offer multiple domestic payment processing solutions. We work to have every merchant approved for credit card processing services in as little time as possible.
