Merchant Accounts For Collectibles, Consignment & Antique Shops

Merchant Accounts For Collectibles & Antique Stores

An Overview

Antiques & Collectibles Credit Card Processing

Why We Proudly Accept Antiques and Collectibles Businesses (Even When Many Processors Don’t)

Many credit card processors do not accept antiques and collectibles businesses, primarily for two reasons:

  1. The first is that the nature of the products sold (e.g. stamps, coins, or antiques) are typically high dollar items. These goods are often the target of fraud wherein customers will purchase the item, initiate a chargeback, and attempt to resell it on the open market. Alternatively, fraudsters use stolen credit cards to purchase goods to resell, and the legitimate credit card owner initiates the chargeback.
  2. Second, the authenticity of products sold by antiques and collectibles businesses can be disputed. Consequently, the potential for a swindling merchant to sell fraudulent goods is a chargeback risk.

Due to these risks, many credit card processors to decline to do business with the entire antiques and collectibles industry.

Soar Payments, by contrast, has been proud to serve the collectibles and antique stores since our company’s inception. Our extensive relationships with credit card processors and sponsor banks who specialize in underwriting businesses with increased chargeback exposure, enables us to confidently support antiques and collectibles shops. Moreover, our fully integrated chargeback and fraud prevention solutions, uniquely position Soar Payments to help protect our merchants from some of the inevitable risks endemic to this industry.
