Get a U.S. tech support merchant account from EMB

Mar 14, 2016

Tech support merchant accounts are very difficult to open. In fact, when merchant account providers hear the words “tech support” they immediately think about two words “high risk.” In general, tech support accounts are characterized by high rates of fraud. In the event of fraud, the merchant account provider risks losing money. Since no one likes losing money, they would rather just stay away.

A common tech account risk is tech support scams. It isn’t uncommon for an individual or a group of fraudsters to set up an account providing bogus services in a bid to gain access to the caller’s private information. For instance, someone could claim to provide technical support for a brand of smartphones while in reality that person doesn’t offer such services. When customers browse the internet, they can find their contacts from forums and made-up “company” websites. Once a customer makes a call to the fake tech support account, their personal information can be recorded and from that point forward, the fraudsters can do whatever they like with such information. Most merchant banks are not willing to be involved in such activities. To stay on the safe side, they will simply reject your application.

While your tech support business might be 100% legitimate (and very many of them are), the fact that the industry is already marred with these kinds of frauds means that you may not be readily accepted at a merchant bank. Where you’re accepted, the rates and fees might be exuberant and you will have to prove to the bank beyond reasonable doubt that you can be trusted. Intimidating, right?

Fortunately, you can now open a U.S. tech support merchant account without going through all those troubles. If you’re in the outsourcing business, genuinely helping people and companies to outsource their technical support, you can now open a tech support merchant account with, quickly and easily.

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.
