What is a merchant account?

Every business that accepts card payments requires a merchant account. This account is a holding account that ensures there is enough money in your customer's account to complete the purchase.

The payment process in 3 steps

1- Purchase

A customer makes a card payment in your physical or online store.

2 - Transfer

With the help of your acquirer, we verify that there is money in the customer’s account and then withdraw the order amount.

3 - Deposit

The acquirer will then deposit the money into your business bank account.
