CYOP Provides Merchant Services That Enable Businesses To Accept Credit Card Payments By Retail Point of Sale, From Their Ecommerce Webstore, Or Mobile Device.
A merchant account is needed by any business that wants to accept credit card payments directly from their customers without using a 3rd party processor, like PayPal.
A merchant account is a formal agreement between a merchant and a credit card processor that will allow the business to accept credit card payments and funds that are collected by credit card are automatically deposited into the merchant's bank account.
There are effectively two categories of merchant accounts including a retail, card present merchant account and an Internet, card not present account, which is also called a "MOTO" (Mail Order/Telephone Order) merchant account. With a "card present" account, the customer's credit card is actually present at the time of the sale and is typically swiped through a credit card terminal that transmits the transaction information for approval to the merchant provider. With a MOTO or Internet merchant account, the card is not present at the time of transaction creating a higher risk, so additional approval is required.
If you're in a very high risk industry, you may require a high risk merchant account which can apply to either retail or MOTO businesses.
Whether you need a retail, Internet or a high risk merchant account, CYOP is able to help. We have numerous sources for reliable credit card processing both here in the USA and Internationally and can present you to the credit card processor that best meets your needs.
CYOP can also help you secure e-check processing to be able to accept e-check payments by phone, website, or mobile device; and we provide open source point of sale solutions for retail merchants.
