Tap Into the Power of the Bail Bondsman Association

Jul 28, 2014

Does someone you know need to be bailed out of jail quickly? Chances are you won’t have the money to raise bail and will need the help of a qualified bail bonds service. In order for bail bondsmen to protect their businesses, they must protect their interests. Bail bondsman associations are organizations that exist to protect and grow the bail bond profession. Associations fight for legislation, policies, and community initiatives that ensure the survival and success of their particular organization.

It is important that every individual bail bondsman understands the role an association plays in the community and how they can affect this role. Melanie Ledgerwood, Executive Director and CEO of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States (PBUS) notes that “[Members of PBUS have] an opportunity to network with their colleagues across the nation. With the bail industry under increasing attack from tax-payer-based programs, it’s important that we present a unified voice when promoting the bail industry.” She also notes that bails bondsman should be keeping up with what changes are occurring in the industry across the country and within specific states.

George Zouvelos, a New York bondsman says, “I think that if each state can have a strong association, the larger association is only as strong as its membership,” he said. Zouvelos believes that his association is an example of what strong participation and engagement can do for the bail bondsman community. “We travel all the way from Buffalo all the way out to Montauk. What’s important is that we travel from county to county and we gather the intelligence and pulse of each legislature and also the bondsmen that are on the ground there.” This, he claims, has given his association the ability to influence judges and public opinion in the favor of the bail bondsman association.

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.
