Short term merchant accounts

Short term merchant services

Understandably some businesses do not want to be tied into lengthy contracts when accepting face to face card payments for a short period of time. Contracts with most mainstream account providers can tie merchants in for up to four years, and prove costly for seasonal businesses or companies who require a merchant account short-term.

Short term merchant account for a new business

With mainstream providers offering contracts lengths of up to four years, this can be rather off putting for a new business. Not only will rates be higher for a new company with no trading history, but signing a contract for four years can be disconcerting when you don’t know where your business will be by then. Having a short-term merchant account for a new business can be the perfect solution, meaning that you can re-assess your merchant account and provider at the end of your short-term deal and therefore apply for much more appealing rates, when you have transaction statements.
