Merchant account

Asked by: Eva Fekete  — 1 September, 2011

Can I use a checking account as a merchant account for my corporation?

Answered by: admin  — 1 September, 2011


Merchant accounts are different from regular checking accounts, and if you want to open one for your company you should contact a merchant service provider.

Typically you would need to submit an application and go through a credit check. Then in order to process payments you would need a terminal. It can be physical terminal where you would swipe cards, or online terminal such as this used by websites to process payments.
