Accept credit cards online Adult Site? Topic: Underwriting services
June 16, 2019 / By Vega
Question: I am looking for a merchant account that will process credit card payment online. A 3rd party processor would be ok. This is for a adult dating web site and every company I have found does not work with adult sites. I also need international payment processing. If anyone knows of a good legitimate company please post the name or link.

Your business falls into the highest risk category for credit card processing, that's why you are having a hard time finding a provider. You don't have to go through a third party processor though. They are the most expensive ones and you give up control over your account as well. If you Google "adult credit card processing", you will come up with a whole bunch of potential processors and the first in the list is appropriately called www.adultcardprocessing.com. Be advised that the reason not every merchant account provider can accommodate your business requirements is that US banks will not underwrite certain very high-risk accounts (like yours). So companies that can provide you with merchant services are large enough to be able to underwrite (in other words to assume the risk) themselves. Most of the time they also have relationships with offshore banks and will be able to do your international processing as well. Good luck!

I am not too up about accepting credit cards online Adult Sites but if I was to try and find out I would seek out other adult sites and I'd pretend to be a customer, with a hot credit card wanting to pay. Then copy them. Actually it reminds me with some friends we did this once, after 35 minutes of getting redirected we gave up, but it was 1997 so things surely have improved. Hope I helped.

If you wish to accept credit cards, I suggest dealing with Payanywhere. They offer the minimum commission costs. They have no setup or monthly charges. I've been accepting credit cards using them for over 5 years and I am pleased with their service. You can check this out at: http://is.gd/payanywhere

Yes, this is a common problem for internet sites that are consider high risk. These types of businesses are usually considered high risk in the merchant services industry: -- Online casinos and other gaming/ gambling agencies including sports wagering. - Adult services and products. - Pharmaceutical products. - Travel services. - Telemarketing businesses. - ISP and hosting services. - Online cigarette or tobacco vending. - Online auctions and debt services. - Online dating services. The good news is you will still be able to get a merchant account, but you may have a higher then normal merchant account discount rate. Typically a competitive online discount rates goes for about 2.5% - 4% and high risk discount rates can be from 4% - 14%. I would recommend trying Intabill if you have not tried them yet. They handle high risk accounts and can process internationally.

Here is the best advice I can give you. Stay away from department store credit cards. They are useless. They have the highest interest rates. And when you really analyze their advertised benefits....you only get those benefits when you spend a whole hella money. Pay with cash at the department store.
