Low risk vs High risk merchants

I’ve been doing a lot of surfing and searching for all things related to making money online. I’ve come across a mind-blowing amount of information and one thing always seems to lead to another.

If you’re going to do business online, you’ll need a method of processing payments. I was sent a link to Advantage Processors and thought I’d check it out. I surf over to the website and start reading the copy. Advantage Processors provides credit card processing merchant accounts for both Low Risk and High Risk merchants. I had never heard of those terms before. Some of the high risk merchants they list are gaming sites, adult sites, dating agencies, etc. Whew, guess I’d fall into the low risk category, lol. Anyway, I don’t need Advantage Processors services as I have a Paypal account so if I were ever to receive a payment (or donation, hint, hint), I’d be covered. But it was nice to learn something new.

Hi!

Paypal is great. Most online business used it. Unfortunately I don't have it. My country of origin has paypal but only for spending credit and not for receiving payment. This greatly affect my online money making effort. I cannot join most them all. I am force to stick with those that offer check payments, e-gold and xoom which can receive payments directly from paypal.

Say for example, I love to join www.associatedcontent.com to earn more from my articles but I cannot.

Good for you, you have all the option.

God bless. You have a great blog and inspiring website too.

Hi Ruben, thanks for the nice comments. What country are you from? Check this link and see if you're on there. Seems like PayPal's the most widely accessible online card processor out there. Good luck!

I am from the Philippines and yes, we have paypal here since October of last year but only for spending. Maybe, it will take another year or so for us to have a full paypal features..
