With a worldwide economy in crisis, consumer debt rises each year. Struggling families often pay off one credit card using another and find themselves falling deeper into the consumer debt hole. To many filing bankruptcy feels like their only option, but as a debt consolidation merchant, your business helps to give people their lives back and form new habits to build a brighter future with a debt consolidation merchant account.

Why do many banks consider debt consolidation merchants to be high risk businesses?

The simple answer is that in most cases the customer is not present to sign for the purchase. This includes payments accepted by credit card, debit card, or electronic checks. This automatically puts your debt consolidation business at an increased risk for fraud.  But, there are other reasons:

  • People who utilize debt consolidation have struggled in the past, and banks worry they may struggle to pay in the future.
  • If your debt consolidation company is a start up, there is no credit history.
  • Your debt consolidation business may have grown from small to medium or high volume.
  • Large ticket transaction processing.
