What is a merchant account?
Any business that wants to start accepting debit/credit card payments may need to setup what’s called a merchant account. The merchant account is designed specifically for the handling of credit and debit card transactions.
It is the responsibility of the merchant bank account for processing card payments and manages the relevant fees/charges linked with credit and debit cards transactions.
Customers money you take from all card transactions is held in the merchant account before eventually being passed on to your business bank account.
Why do I need a merchant account?
The merchant accounts play an important role in the card payment process as it verifies the customers card details to make sure they are correct and there is enough money in their account to make payment.
How can I open a merchant account?
