Merchant accounts for tech support companies

At Merchant Advice Service we regularly help customers in more high risk or specialist industries get the right card payment solution for them. Tech support companies are a great example of this. We work with the handful of merchant and gateway providers who are perfectly placed to help and can get you the merchant account you need at excellent rates.


Merchant Accounts for Tech Support Companies

Often finding a merchant account and payment gateway for tech support businesses can be tricky. Some merchant providers class them as high risk for two reasons:

  • Firstly, the amount of fraud carried out within the tech support industry makes the majority of merchant providers very wary, in particular security around updates and fixes.
  • Secondly, the sector is known for a large number of chargebacks, as clients often sign up to a subscription of some sort, paying monthly and either cancelling or forgetting that they signed up to the service to begin with.

The good news is work closely with a handful of merchant account providers and payment gateway providers for tech support who are able to help.

Best payment gateways for tech support

Setting up payment gateways for industries with a high fraud-risk does come with limitations. As a business owner, it’s important that you protect your client’s interest when taking online payments. To find out exactly how payment gateways work read our article on the subject. At Merchant Advice Service we work with tech support payment gateway providers who specialise in just this. The areas we focus on in particular are:

· Payment gateway for tech support business
· Payment gateways for online tech support
· Payment gateway for tech support companies in the USA, Canada and many more
· International payment gateways for tech support business


International Payment Gateways

This area in particular is one that needs to be highlighted as some merchant banks and gateway providers for tech support companies either cover the UK only, Europe only, or provide an international service. Given the nature of the industry a lot of technical support is often outsourced to other areas of the world. When searching for a high-risk merchant account for your tech support business and complimentary gateways it is essential that this is considered now and in future business plans.

At Merchant Advice Service we can help secure you the best deal on payment gateways, no matter how unique or complex your business set-up is. Remember that we’re UK based, in the midlands, and the majority of the other companies you will speak to to find help are USA centric.

Libby James

Libby James Co-founded Merchant Advice Service alongside David Bird in 2016. Her finance background, coupled with retail and customer service experience, gave Libby the drive to bring transparency and non-biased advice to the world of merchant services. Having come from the heavily regulated mortgage and insurance industry, Libby found it puzzling that other financial sectors lacked regulation and transparency leaving customers confused and unable to make informed decisions when it came to accepting card payments. This was soon to become Libby’s obsession!

With the help of some of the industry’s best, Libby began to research acquiring banks, complex terminology/regulation, and the problems customers experience within merchant services and payment gateway markets. She spent years on sourcing solutions for complex clients, which previously others were unable to assist with. Libby established relationships with brokers and banks which would soon form the cornerstone of Merchant Advice Service. As a result Libby has been featured in high-profile publications across the web.

Libby is proud to be the entrepreneur’s champion, supporting start-up businesses regularly. Her industry insights can often be found on LinkedIn where she provides free of charge advice and money saving pointers. It’s safe to say she has her finger on the pulse of everything card payments related.

Libby speaks of her experience in founding and running Merchant Advice Service…

‘Merchant Advice Service is one of my greatest achievements to date. We help business owners to overcome card processing issues which can become detrimental to their business. We assist SME’s in finding suitable card payments solutions, helping them create their vision. Each and every day is different, exciting and fore filling. As technology advances I can’t wait to see the way in which the merchant services market advances, and I’m pleased that our business will play a part in educating company owners along the way.’
