It may help in stopping the misuse of the virtual terminal or Moto facility.
ACH and Echeck For Low Risk Merchants
Credit Card processing is an expensive solution then ACH payment processing. If the Merchant has a USA bank account, then he can use the ACH payment gateway with low transaction fees. There is no setup fee on ACH payment options for a low-risk merchant account category. ACH Payment processing solution comes with its virtual terminal. Many credit card processing companies limit and restrict the merchant’s monthly sales capping. These merchants can put some sales volume on ACH. Echeck Merchant Account or Substitute check can also work for these merchants. USA Merchants can also use Echeck or Substitute check that works as per 21st-century check 21 act. With the solution, the Merchant gets a printed copy of the cheque issued by the payer. This check has the same value as a regular paper check. Merchants can send the check to their bank for clearance. These solutions are incredibly economical and highly reliable.
Features Of Low-Risk Merchant Bank Accounts
- Integration Is Smooth And Easy. Once you get approved for a Low-Risk Merchant Account, then it’s the time for you to incorporate it into your website. There are multiple ways of integrating the merchant account on your site. Here are a few integration options listed.
- Hosted Payment Page Integration. This kind of integration is one of the easiest ways to connect the website to the gateway. The Merchant usually has to put a small HTML coding on the site that creates a buy now button. The customer clicks on the Buy Now Button and then sees a 3D secure hosted payment page. This 3D secure payment page collects the credit card information.
- API And Plugin Based Integration. With API and plugin-based integration, customers get the opportunity to type in the credit card information on the checkout page. The credit card information is encrypted and securely forwarded to the payment ecosystem. In this kind of integration, the Merchant does not receive the credit card information, thus ensures transaction security.
- Pay By Email Or Invoice Payment Link. To stay ahead in the game, most of the low-risk merchant accounts providers have started offering pay by email and invoice payment link options. The Merchant generates this link after logging into the motion account panel. The Merchant can quickly send a payment request directly to the registered email address of the customer. The customer can open his email and click on the buy now button and proceed for the transaction.
- IVR integration Or IVR Payment Gateway Integration. Depending on how comfortable the acquirer is the Merchant may get the IVR payment gateway option as well. With the IVR payment gateway, customers can key in the credit card information on a secure interactive voice response system by using his touch-tone phone.
- Chargeback Management And Account Stability. Most of the time, low-risk merchant account holders hardly encounter over 1% of chargeback. Having said that, there might be a possibility that chargeback percentage goes high. If the chargeback ratio goes beyond 1%, then the payment service provider may terminate or suspend the merchant account. This sometimes happens in the case of e-commerce Merchants. To maintain a longer life of your credit card processing account, we strongly recommend you to use a chargeback alert and notification service. With these kinds of services, you will be able to reduce your chargeback ratio to a considerable extent. After getting the notifications, you can call the customer and try to resolve the dispute. You, as a merchant will be in a better position to coordinate with the customer and try to resolve any conflict. It will eventually help you in retaining more customers and lower down the chargeback ratio.
