Need an offshore merchant account for your IT Company? – We Offer Merchants the world!

Oct 25, 2013

If you are in need of an offshore account, take the time to compare companies and find the right one for you and your IT Company. As part of your new system, you may need to start a new bank account and establish yourself before they will work with you. Also know, that some require anywhere from $1,000 to $350,000.

The positive side of things

Looking at the plus side, an offshore account will give you the opportunity to accept payments from over 160 countries and multiple currencies. You will have fewer trading restrictions and get to keep more of your money. Your tax rate will ultimately be less than what you have been paying, and the transaction caps that you suffer through will go away.

When cash comes in

You can get payments seven days a week and your reservation will be reduced to 180 days. They give you a rolling reserve with a ten percent deposit from your daily sales. Your cash is available to you any day of the week when you need it.

As with other accounts

With offshore merchant accounts, you get fraud protection with 3d secure, a MasterCard secure code, and Verified by Visa as an option. A high-risk country block, AVS, and CVV2 verification and internet protocol with an IP address. A Virtual Terminal for online transactions with a secure Gateway.

When looking

If you know someone that has an offshore account, ask them who they are using. That may save you mistakes that you can’t afford to make. If you don’t, you will need to do a lot of shopping. And even if it feels uncomfortable, maybe your bank can give you a recommendation.

The last thing you need is to jump into something that is supposed to be good for you, only to be with someone that isn’t any more than a thief, and you lose everything you have. And as you set this up, it might be a good idea to take out some insurance for such an incident, just in case you don’t see a fraudulent company until it’s too late.

Some work

Having an offshore bank to use for your merchant account has a lot of advantages. You may have a few hoops to jump through to find those advantages, but with some work on your part, it could lead to things you never dreamed of.

Take that extra bit of time and search for those references. You don’t want to lay down everything you have for all these new and wonderful things and have it go all wrong because you found the thieves instead of honest working banks. Don’t give in until you are comfortable with the way things are, and justify everything for going offshore.

Know that your debit and credit card transactions are safe and secure and that you can get your money when you want to. Good luck with your new adventure for your business.

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.
