When you decide to start selling products or services online, you’ll soon realize that you need to integrate payment processing onto your website. To get that started, one of your first steps is to apply for an eCommerce merchant account with a reliable merchant services company.
However, even before doing that, you should run through the following checklist to ensure that you’ll have a higher chance of being approved for accepting credit cards online:
1) Have a working website with products and services listed along with clear descriptions
2) Have a Terms and Conditions webpage readily available for your website visitors
It’s also advisable to have a website secured with an SSL certificate; however, if you do not have one, some merchant service providers can redirect your customers to their own secure checkout page. If you’re unsure, it never hurts to ask a merchant account representative.
