Do I need to have great credit to get approved?
Personal and business credit are factors that are used to qualify a business or individual for a merchant account. Every merchant account application will include a credit check of the business and the person signing for the merchant account. Perfect credit is not a requirement for opening a merchant account, but a better credit rating can help speed up the application process. The only time that credit becomes an issue when opening a merchant account, is if a merchant has an open bankruptcy, or has been terminated from processing in the past.
Our company processes through five domestic processing banks which enables us to provide services to nearly any business, regardless of past credit history.
