Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about mid risk merchant accounts.
What Is Mid Risk? What’s The Difference Between Mid Risk And High Risk?
Many merchants are familiar with the term “high risk” as it pertains to their credit card processing, but are unfamiliar with the “mid risk” classification. Essentially, merchants classified as “mid risk” may have one or more of the following characteristics:
- irregular or very high-ticket sales;
- in an industry with a history of high chargebacks;
- in an industry that large banks are “politically” unwilling to support; or
- in a highly regulated industry.
The difference between the two classifications is usually one of degree. For instance, a slightly-higher-than-average chargeback ratio may mean a business cannot be classified as “low risk,” but the business otherwise has “low risk” merchant characteristics; so rather than classifying the business as “high risk,” SoarPay can extend “mid risk” pricing to these types of merchants, therefore saving the merchant on monthly fees.
Many payment processors do not bother with the distinction between high risk and mid risk merchant accounts, but SoarPay does so in able to deliver our Industry Minimum Pricing.
