Get Started with Multi-Level Marketing & BizOps Merchant Accounts

Credit Card Payment Processing for Your Direct Selling Business

You’re in good hands with our high risk merchant account experts.
You may have jumped through hoops and still got denied for a merchant account, which can be discouraging and we understand that. We’re here to help you get the right merchant account for every sector of the direct selling industry, which refers to selling products or services to the consumer in a non-retail environment and includes:
  • Business Opportunities (BizOps): consulting, coaching, or training programs geared toward helping individuals understand how to make an income (usually from home).
  • Multi-level Marketing: also called pyramid selling, network marketing, and referral marketing, MLMs are known for selling products like health/beauty and fitness products, or jewelry and clothing.

Why Multi-level Marketing Companies and BizOps Agencies are Considered High Risk

Within the direct selling industry, being considered high risk by banks isn’t as much about the products or services being sold, but based on how payments are processed and the perceptions of the industry, including:

  • A majority of transactions in this industry are considered card-not-present, made when products or services are offered over the telephone or online
  • Misconceptions about the legality or perceived fraud in the industry, particularly with MLMs
  • Buyer’s remorse can result in excessive chargebacks, especially with the expectations they might have for BizOps purchases
  • Unpredictable business growth makes it hard to forecast income
