Digital Streaming Service Credit Card Processing
Why We Proudly Accept Digital Streaming Services As Merchants (Even When Many Processors Don’t)
Many credit card processors do not accept digital streaming services as clients, for several reasons. First, it is obvious, but most digital streaming services are eCommerce transactions. eCommerce sales, because they can’t involve a chip card or magnetic swipe, but instead have the customer typing in their credit card number, are more susceptible to fraud and friendly fraud chargebacks. Second, because digital streaming services almost always involve recurring billing, which as a categorical type of credit card charge, is more susceptible to high chargeback rates. Third, because digital services, whether they be mobile data streaming, data reselling, live-streaming, or other digital services are relatively new. Often, credit card processing underwriters simply do not understand the industry or the service being offered, and out of an overabundance of caution, simply prohibit the industry entirely.
Soar Payments, by contrast, has been proud to serve the digital streaming industry since our company’s inception. Our extensive relationships with credit card processors and sponsor banks who specialize in underwriting businesses perceived as “high risk” enables us to confidently support these businesses (including data streaming businesses, mobile streaming apps, and all types of streaming-related apps). 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.
