How Technical Support Services Work
When I started my research of this business, I communicated a number of people who I thought might have some practice in managing with such merchants and what I heard from them didn’t precisely come as a surprise to me. Most of my contemporaries warned me that such businesses were very difficult to work with �” that their company practices were doubtful, that they could infrequently produce all of the required paperwork, which they were slow to follow up on information requests that their chargeback ratios were sky-high, that customer objection levels were off the chart and so on. �Where have I heard that before?�, I wondered. And my initial practice rapidly confirmed the authenticity of these warnings. However, I had the good fortune to quickly stumble upon a merchant which turned out to be hard, trustworthy and following a set of best practices, which ensured low levels of customer complaints and chargebacks. Equally as important, it also had grown to a reputable processing volume �” about $500,000 a month and growing.

How to Get and �” More Importantly �” Keep a Merchant Account
This particular merchant is based in the U.S. and, by the time it contacted us, it had gone through several merchant accounts with some of the biggest U.S. processors, a couple of which were still active. Now, this is an error which you should not repeat �” don’t open up many merchant accounts at once, unless you actually need and use them all. Otherwise, processors get nervous and understandably so �” what is to say that the new Offshore Merchant Account you are applying for would not just lie dormant or be replaced in the near future? In the event, we asked our merchant to explain why it had gone through all these merchant accounts and received a satisfactory explanation. I should also add that the merchant had already received notices that its remaining two accounts would be closed within a month, which brings me to the next lesson �” if you operate an online tech support business, the mainstream processors would not be a viable option �” even if you do manage to get an account with them set-up and functioning, it is inevitable that it will be closed just as soon as their risk department takes a close look at it. What you need is a high-risk solution, although not necessarily an offshore one.
