There are many illegal ways to go about this industry therefore banks and card processors immediately have restricted what merchant accounts are allowed. Everyone deserves to run a successful business but not everyone knows exactly how to go about doing so. Well, the simple answer is to be aware of the gaming industries’ unique and specific needs in order to thrive.

Some states have made the effort to shut down the gaming industry as a whole. To avoid transactional drama with customers you must have the right payment processor. Because gaming merchant accounts are subjected to high risk it is important to implement a high-risk merchant account provider that can handle all problems. A generic bank does not have underwriting abilities to offer you an online gaming merchant account. When you sign up with a high-risk gaming merchant account it is important to anticipate higher fees than a traditional bank. This is because high-risk merchants have the tools and experience to truly save your business from taking on too many chargebacks and eventually hurting your business.

Was Your Gaming Merchant Account Shut Down By Your Processor?

So you might be wondering why a merchant account would be shut down? Well, it is more common than you think. The main culprit is having a high ratio of chargebacks. What’s a chargeback? A chargeback is when the customer disputes an unusual charge on their debit or credit card. The customer will call the number on the back of the card and claim to not have authorized the purchase.  They will insist they deserve a chargeback; the charge isn’t one they recognize, they never got the item they purchased, the product wasn’t what they wanted, not authentic merchandise. can be incredibly frustrating for a business when the customer was rightfully so charged.

However, even if the charge was correct and the customer forgot the monthly charge and was a sore loser, this interaction can affect a business’s relationship with the acquired bank. This can then lead to a downhill spiral, eventually, the gaming merchant account is shut down and the company could go out of business. This creates a stressful scenario. The customer will contact their bank who charged them, who then contacts the merchant account company who then contacts you. As the business owner, you are given the opportunity to repute this chargeback and stand up for your company. If a business accumulates too many chargebacks it can be dangerous for the longevity of the gaming-related business.

Gaming merchant accounts need to be thought out and chose wisely. Preferably a high-risk merchant account that has the experience and knowledge you need to back up your business.
