Merchant Processing for Adult Live Streaming

Mar 20, 2015

The adult industry is seeing record profits. New technology is enabling consumers to find niche adult content. Novice producers and entertainers are building large fan bases with only a smartphone and laptop, cutting the once prominent adult DVD market at the knees, and ushering in a new generation of entertainers and sophisticated followers. Live adult streaming is a new way that the adult industry is connecting to consumers immediately and conveniently. Streaming has changed the game of adult entertainment, turning small time startups into major money makers.

Since consumers have access to a wide variety of content, many for free, specialized niches have opened new and profitable avenues for newcomers. Cam Companies, like LiveJasmin, are dominating the adult industry and experiencing record profits due to low production costs, diversified revenue streams, and the ability to be accessed at any time. Most in the industry believe the smartphone has played a monumental part in the success of adult streaming. British on demand company, Strictly Broadband, states that over half of its revenue comes from smartphone sales and more than 30 percent of its traffic comes from mobile devices.

Despite the success of the adult streaming industry, merchants still have a difficult time finding and securing adult stream merchant accounts through traditional payment processors, because they are considered “high risk.” Online payment processors like Google Wallet, WePay, and even PayPal, discriminate against them. Still there are some legitimate alternatives for adult streaming companies to turn to for competent, comprehensive 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.
