Solutions for High risk merchant applicants

Wireless Terminal Solutions was formed back in 2010 with the primary intention of allowing business to accept and process payments more effectively. The management team recognised each business requirement and model was different from the next, and for some sole traders or SME businesses a traditional Paypal or SagePay account wasn’t always suitable, nor would it suffice in the short to medium long term. With anything in life the bigger your business becomes the more versatile the business owner has to be, and this is where we have looked to adapt a versatile approach to suit the needs of all business types both big and small.

Many business owners whose business fall into the standard industrial classification as a high risk sector or industry sometimes decide against accepting card payments partiality through a lack of knowledge, and not always having a full understanding of the process involved. As a result they don’t necessarily research what is involved in a high risk merchant application, and if they do perhaps speak with a company that has limited knowledge or doesn’t specialise in this field. The payment industry is densely saturated with many companies promising to help your business, but the reality so few have a wealth of knowledge, information or contacts to support the needs of your business.
