How to Secure a Merchant Account for New Business


How to Secure a Merchant Account for New Business

Securing a merchant account for a new business can be tedious, frustrating, and sometimes fruitless. Many financial institutions simply don’t want the risk. And they have tens of thousands of customers so they feel they can pick and choose who they would like to do business with and that means they may choose ‘not’ to do business with you. They may feel you are too high of a risk or they may feel that your business won’t be profitable enough to make many sales, making it unworthy of their time or resources. Yes, that’s the hard truth.

One of the hardest things to do when starting a new business can be to secure a merchant account. It would seem that it might be one of the easiest parts of doing business, but that’s not necessarily the case. That is, unless you come to AVP Solutions.
