High Risk Processing

High-risk Merchant Account

As high-risk companies are more prone to chargebacks, they come with the need to pay higher fees for merchant services. The more chargebacks a business comes with, the higher the risk. Hence, the main factors that matter are industry reputation and processing history (it’s recommended to keep your chargeback ratio lower than 0.9% of your total transactions).

Reasons Merchants are Labeled High-Risk.
A bank’s underwriting guidelines determine whether a merchant is a high risk. Therefore, each financial institution or processor calculates risk differently. Chargebacks and fraud assess risk. The more likely a business is expected to have a large volume of chargebacks, the greater the risk.
Though one factor alone likely will not determine whether a business requires a high-risk merchant account, these factors influence the decision:

  • Business Location
  • Business Size
  • Credit History
  • Credit Card Processing
  • History
  • High Chargeback Ratios
  • Type of Industry
  • Whether a Business Exclusively Operates Online

Though most merchants only become high-risk accounts after racking up excessive chargebacks, some find advantages to these accounts. Increased sales volume allowances, multi-currency options, and recurring billing are benefits to using high-risk payment processing.
