Merchant Account

Is a bank account established with a payment processor for the establishment of credit card transactions.

Any merchant wishing to accept credit cards must establish a "Merchant Account". It is a special bank account that allows your company accept credit card payments if you own a business E-commerce.

E-commerce is the buying and selling goods and services over the Internet.

Each time you make a business transaction and receive payment by credit card, funds are deposited into this account, and then transferred to a regular bank account where you can dispose of them.

Protecting the rights of consumers in online transactions is the best way to establish and maintain confidence in electronic commerce.
