Starting a Tourism Escort Business

Jul 28, 2014

A great business adventure that tourists will pay for is an escort service; it will provide the local knowledge that can heighten the experience for a tourist. These services require a classy establishment and professional escorts who provide a great service.

It is not only important that the escorts you provide have the best local knowledge, but also have the best appearance, good manners, sophistication, and the ability to fit into any social scene the client requires.

Many tourists visit different places of the world, whether on business or pleasure, who will appreciate the service of an escort business. One that will keep them safe, whilst accompanying them on trips out or to social events.

You will need to provide a mixture of male and female staff to meet the requirements of your clients.

However, there is the financial side of the business you will need to prepare for. Tourists will require a way to pay for your services and while cash is great to deal in, most tourists will prefer to pay by credit or debit card. This is just one reason why you must sort out your escort merchant account as soon as possible.

It is vital you consider the legal requirements of any business and check what permits and licenses you to require to run an escort business. The requirements will depend on your location, this is why it is vital that you check what you require and have these in place before you start trading.

Your place of business is an important focus of how your clients perceive you. If you have a dirty and untidy office, which lacks organization and style, will put off potential clients. It makes better business sense to provide a classy, stylish office, one that will attract clients and bring in the money for the services that you offer.

Advertising is the best way to tell the tourist you are there, social media is a great way to reach a vast number of people and this is just one option you should consider.

Therefore, if you are considering entering the tourist escort business, properly prepared with the right location and escorts, and by complying with local government requirements, there is no reason why you won’t succeed. Tourism is big business and claiming your share of this multi-billion dollar resource makes great business sense.

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.
