Continuity Subscription Merchant Accounts

The continuity economy has become one of the most successful business structures within the last few years. This is, in part, due to the convenience of paying for and receiving the goods and services. But what is more inconvenient than mailing a check or dealing with the intricacies of PayPal? Without the ability to accept credit card payments quickly and securely, your subscription business will suffer.

On top of this reality, the subscription or recurring structure is not considered a traditional category by acquiring banks. Essentially, this means that, as the business owner, you will have a harder time securing merchant processing in comparison to traditional, low-risk businesses.

Subscription Merchant Accounts are Hard to Place

Due to excessive chargebacks, high volume of sales, and possible fraudulency, banks have deemed this space as high risk. Thankfully, issues such as these can be mitigated or prevented. Finding a merchant account provider for your subscription based company is the first step to processing transactions quickly and efficiently. These services have the capability to put structures in place to allow for continuity billing, a seamless gateway integration, and risk mitigation tactics.

One of the most controversial features many continuity businesses provide is negative option processing. In essence, this feature is a recurring charge or subscription that is set in place and will continue to renew until an action on the consumer’s end is taken. Negative option processing is common practice in the subscription industry. Not only is this feature convenient for the merchant, think steady revenue, it also brings convenience to the consumer who does not have to manually renew the subscription or service each period. However, this style of recurring payment can be viewed as a negative when it comes to finding a merchant account as banks see this service as a potential risk.

Whether you’re offering a trial supplement, a clothing subscription box, or another service, your customers expect to pay with credit and debit cards. Your success hinges on the ability to accept major card types without a hitch. Partnering with a reputable high risk merchant account provider is necessary to support a continuity or subscription style business. PaymentCloud not only focusses on high risk industries, but we work with a plethora of subscription based businesses that are uniquely positioned with the infrastructure and mitigation to provide success.
