What is a merchant account and why is it important?

For any business wanting to start taking card payments, you’ll need to be set up with a verified merchant account service. Without a verified merchant account, you will not be able to accept any type of credit or debit card payments.

It’s important to set up a merchant account because without one you are denying your customers vital payment options. Don’t get left out in the cold. At Payzone, we can help you set up a merchant account to allow you to take card payments quickly and simply to give you peace of mind.

A merchant account at Payzone allows you to do so much. Firstly, you will be able to take card payments in your business.

Virtual Terminal

merchant accounts

It's not just taking payments.

With a merchant account, you will also be able to do a number of other things such as:

1. Checking customer card details are correct to prevent fraud. A merchant account will check that there is enough money for a payment to be made - so the money will go straight into your account.

2. Storing your funds taken from card payments before being redirected into your business bank account.

How easy is it to setup a merchant account?

It's really easy to setup a merchant account service with Payzone!

The Process

1. Once we offer you an initial quote and you’re happy with it, your account is then taken for approval for one of our acquiring banks.

2. You will then be given a merchant ID for your new merchant account.

3. During the process, you will usually be asked to provide a certain amount of information in order to get your account approved. This would typically include information on your business accounts; what your business does; your expected turnover and the extent that transactions will be taken by card.

4. The overall setup process will usually take between a week to ten days.

With Payzone, we can get you set up with your merchant ID pretty quickly so that you can start taking card payments and really growing your business.
