Common Industry Challenges
- Declined Business Types - most major banks are not setup to manage high-risk merchants and are simply unwilling to assume any liability for unfamiliar clients.
- Excessive Fees and Reserves - if you are working through a broker who is working through a friend to get you a good deal…expect to get taken.
- Sketchy Offshore Processors, Disreputable Characters - executing a contract with a company located in a third-world country, getting setup with a one office “processor in the Islands” or doing business with companies located in places that do not have daily flights are usually not good places to put your money. If your “processor” is not a bank, anticipate inevitable problems collecting your deposits.
- Bank or Portfolio Shutdown – it happens all too often. Aggressive high-risk processors that do not abide by card association rules, get shutdown. Avoid companies advertising the ability to process business types prohibited by the card associations as these processors will commonly lose their processing capabilities and…your money.
