This Week's Insider Tip
Merchant Accounts 101 - Understanding Their Role
By Chris Malta, Founder & CEO of Worldwide Brands


What a Merchant Account Is
In its simplest terms, a merchant account is a bank account that allows your online store to accept credit card payments and e-checks. At a specific time each day, your merchant account bank receives that day's completed transactions. They hold the money for several days or more, to make sure all parties involved are satisfied. During this time, they also perform additional security checks. If no issues arise, the bank then wires the money into your business checking account.

What a Merchant Account Isn't
Retailers often confuse merchant accounts with other elements involved in their whole payment solutions. But each element is a separate function of a larger service; merchant accounts are just one piece of the puzzle. 

  • A merchant account is not a shopping cart.
    Shopping cart technology is software that simulates a physical shopping cart, in that it allows users to "place" items in it until they're ready to check out, and then totals their purchases for them.

     
  • A merchant account is not authorization software.
    Authorization software is the equivalent of a digital credit terminal. It runs address verification, sends the buyer's information through fraud detection filters, and ensures the card has enough credit available for the purchase. Authorization software makes instant approval possible.

When you're looking at solution providers, be sure that all three elements - your merchant account, shopping cart, and authorization software - are compatible with one another. They all need to be integrated, in order for you to have that seamless payment solution you're looking for.

Is It Hard to Get Approved for a Merchant Account?
Every institution has different policies and requirements for getting approved.

Some want your corporation papers, your Tax ID, and your business banking account information at the time you apply. Others are more lenient, even to the point of pre-approving your account, and allowing you to activate it when you have everything ready.

Getting approved can be especially challenging if you have poor credit history. However, some institutions will permit you to have a co-signer.

Don't Lose that Sale - Why You Need a Merchant Account
Would-be buyers are likely to move on to another site if yours doesn't offer their preferred payment option. That's why, even if you have a PayPal account, you still need the flexibility a merchant account gives your buyers. You'll lose the majority of your customers who aren't PayPal members if you don't make that option available to them. Most people won't take the time to muddle through PayPal's alternate solutions. If it takes five minutes to find the product and buy it, but fifteen minutes to pay, they're going to go somewhere else. In a sense, having a merchant account is just a part of providing good customer service.
