Merchant Account

Merchant Account is the agreement between a company selling a product and the credit card company responsible for collecting the sale. Marketers have merchant accounts with Visa, Master Card, AMEX, etc. Companies new to direct marketing often have a difficult time getting merchant accounts because of the risks in long distance credit card transactions.

Merchant account discount fee

the percentage of every dollar that the credit card companies charge the marketer for financing their credit card transactions. Typical fees range from 1 to 4%.

I have relationships with the 3 top merchant account service providers in the Direct Response business. I can have you set-up with an account for all the major credit card in a matter of days. These merchant providers also offer account services for web site sales as well.
