Why is travel a “high risk merchant account” category?Merchants that provide travel services are considered to be high risk. There are a variety of reasons for this but at the top of the list is travelers requesting charge backs for trips they were not able to take. Unfair? Yes. Of course, it would be much better if they would just call you, but they don’t. They call their credit card first. All too often the consumer wins and a charge back is issued to the merchant. This relatively high percentage of charge backs has earned travel merchants a spot on the “high risk” list. The reasons for requesting a charge back can be everything from acts of god, to unauthorized employee spending, to the flu. Unfortunately your policies often do little to defend you against charge backs. Even though the customer agreed to them.
Has your travel merchant account to accept credit cards been shut down?
We have your back!
Maybe you exceeded your chargeback percentage. Maybe someone committed friendly fraud on your account and you couldn’t pay the processor back. Maybe the acquiring bank just changed their policy on accepting travel merchants for their merchant services. No matter the reason BIG is here to help!
Even if your business has been added to the MATCH list BIG can often get your travel merchant account approved! Give us a call you will be glad you did.
