A merchant account is a contract under which an acquiring banking extends a line of credit to a merchant, who wishes to accept payment card transactions of a particular card association brand. Without such a contract, one cannot accept payments by any of the major credit card types. You will get your payment right after the transaction done.
-Online’s Service Banking
If you do not have the merchant account, do not worry! You still may conduct internet business on your own. Customer can still ‘bank in’ on to your account through ‘online banking’.
