Before you get started, it’s good to know what to expect when applying for a merchant account. You’re probably wondering…

  • How long will it take?
  • What type of paperwork is involved?
  • What do the underwriters want to see? (Wait, I have to be underwritten?)

In August 2019, we fly to UK to meet the CEO, we were greeted like a king and that alone has touched me on a professional level. I must also thank James Smith for all his support and advice they have been providing to us and these are simply working fantastic so far for our company. We get our settlements on schedule, no questions asked. Extract from Trustpilot ratings.
