Love is in the air… or at least online. There are tons of online dating websites, and yet consumers still seek out more. Niche sites are popular, and they can be lucrative, as well. If you are in the market for a new business venture, online dating may be it; however there may be issues when trying to find a way to accept online payments from your customers.
If you Google “online dating” thousands of sites pop up, with every type of niche you can think of. From hobbies to religions, to clothing size to zodiac signs, there is literally something for everyone. However, while there is a market for these sites, not all stay around as long as the good old standby that is eHarmony.com. This is because, aside from not-too-smart business acumen, they have trouble finding a merchant account processor to work with their company. Merchants tend to look for well-known merchant account processors, which is a good thing unless you are operating an online dating website. This is because online dating merchant accounts are considered to be “high risk” due to their higher risks of incurring fraudulent charges. One too many of these charges, and a traditional merchant account can drop your business.
For those interested in operating an online dating website, you need a high risk merchant account provider, such as eMerchantBroker.com. eMerchantBroker.com, or EMB, is well-known for within the high risk industry for the outstanding service given to its merchants. We at EMB know that online dating merchant accounts are hard to come by, but we are here to change that. We offer you the ability to invest in chargeback insurance, which helps you keep chargeback (i.e., fraudulent charges) fees low, as well as the ability to make sure that these fees are actually fraudulent.
