Merchant Payment Processing Solution for Your Escort Service

Sep 10, 2014

An escort service business is as legal a business as they come. It is legitimate, and it is lucrative. You are neither breaking nor attempting to get around any laws. Yet, for the most unfortunate reasons, this business is never far away from bad publicity and criticism.

The most commonly seen criticism are the links to sex slavery and human trafficking, both of which are equally absurd and far from the truth. You may want to look the other way, but with increasing criticism come the repercussions you have to endure. What this bad publicity means for you is instability. The industry may still be more lucrative than most people expect it to be, but the fact that there are issues being raised and the limelight is never far away means that your business is considered high-risk.

As long as your business is flourishing and you are abiding by the law, you need not spend second worrying except for when it comes to getting an escort merchant account. The need for a merchant account stems from the fact that most of your clients would want to use credit and debit cards to make their payments, and you should encourage them to do so. Asking for cash would only serve to worsen the already struggling image of your business, by portraying the place as shady. A major no-no.

But if the banks aren’t interested, where do you go after all? You come to us.

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.

EMB specializes in working with high-risk merchants. EMB works with many merchants, including but not limited to businesses in these industries: gambling and gaming, adult entertainment, nutraceuticals, vaping and e-cigarettes, electronics, tech support, travel, high-end furniture, weight loss programs, calling cards, e-books and software, and telecommunications.
