Bullet Acquiring Bank / Merchant Bank

Top

Bullet Aggregator
Organizations that provide merchants (in many cases start-up companies) with an Internet merchant account. Newly established companies may have difficulty qualifying immediately for merchant services from local banks due to the company's age, lack of transaction history, etc. Aggregators will accept financial responsibility for these merchants' transactions, effectively acting as guarantor to the acquiring bank for the smaller and newly established companies that banks may not wish to accept directly due to the higher risk involved. Aggregators will combine these smaller merchants under their merchant account enabling them to participate in e-commerce.
