What is it?

A high risk merchant account is a specific kind of merchant account. Almost anything and everything in this world may nowadays be marketed and be made into a business and with any luck, a profit making one. However not every kind of business is a safe option and some businesses may more often run a loss rather than scoring a profit regardless of the experience of the entrepreneur.

Running a business per se is a risky venture, even if the risk involved is minimal. . They are more importantly called so because they tend to incur a lot of negative comments from customers and are notorious for manufacturing unsatisfactory products.

This nevertheless does not prevent the owner from having a merchant account or having credit cards. Such accounts are classified differently as high risk merchant accounts and requires more documents to open but not improbable.

Here are some examples of high risk businesses

• Gun shops

• Pawn shops

• Weight loss centers

• Mobile phones

• Fortune telling and detective agencies

• Computer stores

• Collection agencies

• Coin shops

• Time rental services

What to keep in mind?

There are various factors contributing to the declination of the request for such an account:

• The type of product that is being commoditized

• The credit history of your company or other companies that have produced the same product before, if existing.

• Past processing of your company or others.

What you need to do before applying for a high risk merchant account is, think clearly about the basic problems that might arise and may result in the rejection of your application. Setting up your proposal accordingly is instrumental if you wish it to be accepted.

It is also advised to approach an agency which specializes in mitigating or rather improving the chances of getting the approval for such an account by proper structuring of the proposal though it is important to go to a highly referenced one.
