Internet Merchant Account - Apply Online
Nowadays, it is easier than ever for startups and small businesses to obtain merchant accounts just like the larger players do. Some companies make the process of applying for an Internet merchant account simple, and approval rates are pretty high --even those with poor credit or just starting in business can apply. Credit card processing has never been easier.
Info to have ready when applying for an Internet account
Before you begin applying for an Internet merchant account, you will need to make a realistic assessment of your anticipated volume of credit card sales and the anticipated average transaction size. You will also need to provide the merchant account provider with pertinent information, such as your Federal Tax ID Number or Social Security Number, business and personal contact information, and a check from your business bank account.
With some credit card processing companies, you do not even need a shopping cart on your website to accept credit cards. They will supply you with sample HTML scripts that you can easily change and integrate into your site. However, if you sell a large number of products, it would be wise to offer a shopping cart to your customers.
In order to compete in today's online world merchants need to have an Internet merchant account. If your website doesn't accept credit cards and your competitor's does, it only takes a couple of clicks for you to lose a potential sale. In addition, those sales are being completed 24x7. Whereas, the business that doesn't accept credit cards online is only completing sales during the hours they are open. Many online purchasers look to pay with a credit card so it's almost essential for an online business to set-up an Internet merchant account to process credit card orders.
