Merchant Accounts

Merchant Accounts

Getting the right banking partner and merchant facility can often be seen as a difficult process fraught with many pitfalls.  Many banks and third party providers of merchant accounts can take weeks to get a response back to a prospective merchant and often it can lead to a very convoluted application process.  Many of today’s banks have a very rigid acceptance policy which does not account for the majority of merchants and the non-standard offerings or business model that they have. 

At Axcess we understand each and every business model and merchant we work with before we approach a bank on the merchant’s behalf. In reviewing and understanding the model we can look at the hundreds of banks we have connected on our gateway and work out which one will suit the merchant best.

Many banks still operate the old standard model of approaching merchants with the promise of great rates to get the door open, and once a merchant has said yes, they’ll pass it to another team in the bank to review. A merchant will then, more often than not, be asked to provide much more detail slowing the process, or told that the account doesn’t fit the risk profile of the bank.

At Axcess we look to provide a much more tailored service, ensuring we meet the demands of today’s merchants with the majority of the process completed online and with contracts signed electronically.

Axcess is providing the merchant services of tomorrow to each and every merchant today. For more information, get in touch and one of our dedicated team will be more than happy to assist.
