Clamoring for a New Business Venture? Consider a Personal Escort Business | Escort Merchant Account with EMB

Oct 16, 2014

Personal escort businesses are always in high demand. Though they are taboo to some, they are not your standard, everyday prostitutes. Personal escorts are smart, educated men and women who are employed for conversation, a dinner date, a work event – pretty much anything else that requires a “plus 1”. It may seem like a hard business to break into, but with a little knowledge and business acumen, it is relatively easy.

A good location is key for a successful personal escort service. Urban and high-scale areas are going to bring in more business. Pricing is another issue. If you are in an urban, high-scale area, prices would naturally be higher than in rural, middle-class areas. A good rule of thumb is to check out local competitions. You do not want to price too low, but you also do not want to price too higher, either. The third, and perhaps most important issue you need to address is to make sure that your employees know that if your business is a “no sex” business, they abide by those rules.

You will also need an escort merchant account. Many will turn down your business, due to its increased risk of fraudulent activity.

Having a merchant account allows an account holder to take advantage of merchant cash advances. When a merchant is approved for an advance, the business agrees to receive a lump sum of cash in exchange for an agreed-upon percentage of future credit card sales.

Pricing varies depending on the merchant’s industry, past credit card processing history, the type of business seeking the account, average ticket sales, and average transaction volumes.

Yes, EMB works with merchants who are building their credit, as well as those who have poor credit. EMB also approves merchants that have no credit card processing history and businesses that have lost their merchant accounts due to high chargebacks.

Several factors influence a merchant’s risk level. Though only one factor likely will not get a merchant classified as high risk, a combination of these may: business size, location, and industry, credit score, credit card processing history, a industry’s reputation for excessive chargebacks, a prior history of high chargeback ratios, and whether a merchant exclusively sells online.

Virtual terminals are stationed on a merchant’s website, making it easy for customers to make a payment or purchase online. Merchants or a payment processor can easily set up virtual terminals, so online businesses can accept credit and debit card and e-check transactions.

A merchant account is a business account with an acquiring bank. Without this business account, which actually works more like a line of credit, a merchant cannot accept and process credit and debit card transactions. Businesses need a merchant account to accept major credit cards via a static point-of-sale terminal, mobile card reader, or through a virtual payment gateway.

After filling out EMB’s simple online application and submitting any necessary, requested documents, many merchants get approved within 24 and 48 hours.
