Best Debt Collection Merchant Services Options
If you run or are starting a debt collection business you need a dependable credit card processor at affordable rates. Unfortunately, that’s becoming increasingly difficult to do.
If you’ve been in the industry for any time, the normal cycle for a debt collection company to go through with respect to their credit card processing needs, is to first go through an aggregator like PayPal or Stripe. The benefit to these companies is that they perform very little underwriting, so even though they do not readily accept debt consolidation businesses, you can usually get accepted and integrated quickly. The downside, however, to using these aggregator type accounts is that once you inevitably have a chargeback, or grow your business beyond say, $20,000 per month, these aggregators will begin to look into your business. When they do, their most common response is to freeze all of your funds, for 120 days, and they provide little customer service during the interim.
This is when debt collection companies start looking for a real direct MID merchant account. After calling a number of low risk providers and being turned down or rejected, they’ll realize they need a high-risk merchant account, otherwise they’ll fall into the same cycle of having to tell half-truths to the credit card processor, getting discovered, and having funds frozen. If you’ve started the hunt for a high-risk processor that accepts debt consolidation companies, you’ve found out that there simply aren’t many, and even fewer that offer reliable credit card processing at affordable rates.
Why is Debt Collection Considered High-Risk?
That is because the debt collection industry is regarded as extremely high risk, due to the industry’s historically high chargeback rate. The reason for this, is two fold: (1) the inherent nature of the business is that people are paying money they’d rather not be paying. Some of those people will always initiate a chargeback, and (2) some debt collection companies who didn’t know how to manage chargebacks, or who weren’t working with a knowledgeable high-risk processor and gateway that could help them manage and avoid chargebacks, have given the entire industry a bad reputation. Despite all this, however, thankfully, there are still a few good options.
