Adult entertainment websites are always big business. DVDs and adult theaters are becoming obsolete, thanks to 24/7 access to live entertainment online. While the industry is hot, it can be hard to get a good reputation in the industry. The adult streaming industry is notorious for online hackings and fraudulent charges, and this can leave you scrambling to save your company. You need to make sure before you stream your first webcam that you have a good adult stream merchant account behind you, in case of an emergency.
An adult stream merchant account, such as the one offered by EMB, is the best thing you can have if you are in the adult streaming business. Of course, talent must be good, but if you cannot safely process credit and debit card payments, you might as well switch to another field. You can’t just go with any adult streaming merchant account provider, either. This is what makes the field tricky. Any type of adult service provider, store, or website falls into the “high risk” merchant category. This means that these businesses have a higher risk of incurring fraudulent activity. The remedy for this is usually a lackluster merchant account, with huge processing fees to make up for any lost fees when a fraudulent charge hits. This is sadly the norm in the industry, but luckily there are a few providers, such as EMB, who charge “industry standard” processing fees, to help save you money. EMB also offers up chargeback insurance, which is important for every business to have. Chargeback insurance helps keep chargeback fees low. These fees occur when a fraudulent charge hits, and if you are an adult streaming merchant, you will more than likely have a few chargebacks. Some of these fraudulent charges are “friendly fraud” chargebacks, which typically occur after a spouse or partner notices the charge, and the guilty party says it was a fraudulent charge, and not his or her charge.
The more money you keep in your business, the better product you can give to the public. Be sure to check out all of your options before settling on an adult streaming merchant account.
