Q. How can high-risk merchant be a saviour?
There are several reasons why a processor might label a merchant as ‘high risk.’ Some characteristics that identify high risk businesses are superficial factors based on the business’s industry or clientele, while others are directly related to the merchant’s business practices.
If you run an online business with a higher risk of chargebacks and want to process credit card transactions, that’s when you need a high-risk merchant account. Let’s take an example of high-risk businesses is the travel industry, as there are various factors there that can cause cancellations. This usually ends up with a large number of refunds and customers who file chargebacks. Few others are gambling, forex trading, and adult-themed websites, etc.
