If your merchant service provider abruptly shuts down your account, you may be on a match list.

A match list, or TMF, is a list compiled and managed by credit and debit card providers like MasterCard and Visa, containing information about business owners whose accounts have been terminated in a given period, usually five to seven years, for several reasons.

Being on a match list makes your credit card processing efforts through traditional payment processors hard, leading to lost sales and the decline of your business.

If you are on a match list, you need a reliable payment processing provider who will accept your business and help you get back on track.

Reasons You Are On A Match List

There are many different reasons you and/or your business could be on the Match list. Payment providers are required to list businesses that could pose a threat to other banks or providers. Some reasons include, but are not limited to;
  • A high rate of chargebacks.
  • Too many fraudulent transactions
  • PCI-DSS non-compliance
  • Illegal transactions
  • Identity theft
  • Bankruptcy and any other inability to meet your financial obligations.
Being on a match list is not permanent. Banks add and remove names if they have a reason, although this decision can be difficult. Therefore, you need a match list credit card processing provider with the knowledge and experience to help you.
