High Risk Merchant Accounts For Ontraport

An Overview

Get A High Risk Merchant Account That Seamlessly Integrates With Your Ontraport Account.

Ontraport is a popular CRM and marketing automation platform for small businesses. The company was founded in 2006 by Landon Ray, and is headquartered in Santa Barbara, California. Ontraport has over 100 company employees and also hosts events including ONTRApalooza (OPLZA), an annual conference for Ontraport users.

Why Do Some Ontraport Users Need A High Risk Merchant Account?

Ontraport users sometimes need an alternative credit card processing solution (rather than Stripe, PayPal, etc.) for one of the following reasons:

  1. Industry Is High Risk
    Your Ontraport “store” sells some products within industries that “mainstream” merchant account providers such as Stripe and PayPal categorize as “high risk.” This categorization is up to these providers’ discretion (and may change over time), but in general, a “high risk” categorization may encompass industries such as supplements & nutraceuticals, vape products, firearms accessories, etc.
  2. Previous Chargebacks
    Your previous merchant account received multiple chargebacks within a relatively small sample size of orders. Depending on your Ontraport ecommerce order volume, even two or three chargebacks within a month could trigger an automated or manual review of your merchant account.

Why Do So Many Ontraport Users Choose Soar Payments For Their Credit Card Processing?

  3. Now that your payment gateway is configured, again navigate within Ontraport to Sales > Settings > Payment Gateways, click “New Gateway”, and select your real payment gateway. (If you are approved for a Soar Payments high risk merchant account, you will be assigned a payment gateway with either NMI, Auth.net or USAePay. Just select this payment gateway from the dropdown list.)
  4. Provide the integration details obtained from the individual gateway. (These are provided in your Welcome Email from Soar Payments, after you are approved for your high risk merchant account.)
