Payment Fraud Survey

Rick Burke, TD Bank Head of Corporate Products, mentions that even if the threat of payment fraud is becoming greater, lots of firms are not ready to prevent what is expected in the upcoming 24 months. Burke further notes that corporate treasurers should discuss fraud-related issues with their banking partners. This will help them keep their payments processing and accounts under control, determine better ways to provide multi-level defense, and successfully detect fraud-related activities.

Only 20% conference attendees’ companies use a paper-free system. 32% think they will convert to an electronic system in the upcoming 2 years. 42% believe the change will take min. 3 years. 49% are sure their business is in need of real-time payment processing.

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.
