What is a High Risk Merchant Account?

Specific industries carry a higher amount of risk than others. Even if your business is relatively stable, your sector may experience a higher-than-normal payment default rate, chargebacks, or instances of fraud. As a result, it may be challenging to find reliable payment processing because many companies may see your business as a potential risk. A full-service, high risk merchant account allows businesses in these fields to get the payment processing they need to run their company.
