Interested In A Merchant Account For eBay?

Nov 09, 2016

In 2015, PayPal and eBay turned into independent companies. According to eBay, both companies were going to benefit from the separation.

PayPal and eBay

People outside the eBay were sure the separation would be beneficial for both companies. They believed not much would change from the consumer or merchant perspective. Moreover, it was expected that independent operation would help eBay generate better profits and would provide a positive future for the company.

According to Neira Jones, UK payments expert, one of the strategic factors that contributed towards separation was the constant divergences about the future ambitions between the companies. PayPal wanted to become a regulated payment brand like Visa and MasterCard. eBay was trying to become the global marketplace it wanted to be.

Jones further noted that if PayPal became a financial institution, the same stringent rules would be applied both for seller account setup and merchant account setup. When opening an account, buyers would be subject to bank-like controls. So to fulfill their ambitions, eBay and PayPal needed to become separate companies.

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.
