Business Merchant Account
What is a Business Merchant Account?
Without such a facility a Merchant cannot directly accept payments via credit or debit card. In the competitive retail marketplace merchants need to ensure that prospective clients can purchase their goods or services as easily as possible. Allowing users to pay in the manner most convenient to them is one way to make the process as streamlined and straightforward as possible for the customer.
Lancore has a wealth of experience in assisting Merchants in obtaining business merchant accounts and due to our extensive worldwide links with a number of acquiring banks, we are able to offer our Merchants extremely competitive rates.
Please note that Lancore, as well as accepting payment transactions through the traditional industries, can also accept those Merchants who process credit card transactions through the high risk industries e.g. pharmaceuticals, online dating etc.
