Factors that Affect Rate Structure

Exact rates are set after a complete underwriting package is received and underwritten. Three factors that affect rates are:

  1. Processing History. Processing history shows the volume of processing, returns, and chargebacks. It demonstrates a merchant’s ability to successfully manage an account.
  2. Business Financials. Generally required for high volume accounts, financials show the flow of money in and out of the business. This helps determine the risk level associated with a particular merchant.
  3. Industry Type. Certain industries are automatically classified as higher risk because of the statistically greater likelihood of chargebacks. Good processing history and financial statements go a long way in mitigating perceived risk during the underwriting process.

A merchant account is at its core a short-term line of credit extended to a business. Once you have established processing history with the banks, initial rates & reserves can be renegotiated and reduced.
