Securing a PC tech support merchant account to be able to accept credit cards online is the obvious next step for any tech support or IT business. Unfortunately, most payment gateway providers and banks black-list these types of businesses because of the increased risk for fraud and chargebacks. Fortunately, there are options to secure a payment gateway for tech support businesses with the right high risk provider and banking partnership.
In the tech support and IT industry, you know that being able to accept credit cards online is vital to the success of the operation as clients are often times on the other end of the phone line. If the support representative cannot collect payment via credit card then he/she can’t close the sale. Customers no longer rely on cash and debit transactions to make purchases, especially if it’s a larger amount. Less cash on hand and credit card reward programs have incentivised spending to favor credit purchases.
Selling a service related to IT or tech support has inherent risks. Reasons for this include:
A majority of banks are unable and unwilling to support a payment gateway for online technical support merchants for these reasons. But it doesn’t have to be this way, there are high risk providers out there who have the infrastructure, underwriting, and risk mitigation procedures for IT and tech support merchants.
Most merchants find their way to us because they have been shut down by their previous tier one processor. This commonly happens after months of processing and without warning. Luckily, PaymentCloud has the relationships in place to be able to secure credit card processing for tech support businesses.

PaymentCloud credit card processing procedures allow you to get back to the basics of running your business.
