Payment Gateway Providers. Which One To Choose?

Mar 17, 2017

A payment gateway is crucial for your business as it enables you to process sales made via credit and debit cards. Not all payment gateway providers offer the same. You should take the time to find a reputable provider so to get the best for your business.

Where to Find the Right Payment Gateway?

Look for a payment processor that adheres to PCI-compliant data security. In other words, turn to a processor that follows the latest guidelines concerning the storage of your financial data, the way your financial information is processed, and who has access to card accounts.

Consider a credit card payment gateway that offers integration with the accounting software, checkout carts, customer relationship management platforms, and content management suites used by your business. Such payment integration will help you:

  • Save time as you won’t be obliged to manually update records
  • Save money as you won’t have to pay employees for daily routine tasks
  • Report faster and avoid mistakes as human error will be removed from the equation

A payment gateway with PCI-compliant security and seamless integration will enable you to sell products and services with greater confidence. A payment gateway offered by the #1 high risk processor in the US, (EMB), is the right option to choose.

Advanced Fraud Protection from EMB

Online fraud is of major concern in the US. With EMV chip cards becoming mainstream in the US, cyber fraud is expected to grow in the years to come.

EMV chip cards effectively fight in-store retail fraud. Major markets have witnessed decrease in card fraud after the adoption of EMV technology. In the UK, in-store fraud reduced by 70% after the adoption of EMV chip cards.

This made many criminals move to the online world where EMV security offers little protection from anonymous hackers who have access to addresses and card numbers. It is estimated that online fraudulent losses could make up $6.4 billion each year by the year 2018.

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.
