The Secret of High Risk Merchant Accounts
A high-risk account is an account opened by a merchant that has a higher risk of fraud, chargebacks, or other types of negative activity. This can include merchants who sell products or services that are considered more likely to be used for fraudulent purposes, such as online gambling and pornography sites.
High-risk merchant accounts are often subject to higher fees and stricter requirements than standard accounts. In some cases, high-risk merchant accounts may be closed if there is a history of high chargeback rates or other negative behavior.
