What is a merchant account?

To accept credit cards, debit cards, and other types of electronic payments for your business, you'll need a merchant account.

A merchant account is a type of bank account that allows your business to securely accept payments.

Payments are authorized through this account and then, when the transactions are approved and verified, they are deposited into your bank account.

  • Connects with a payment gateway to process payments
