What documents will I need to submit when applying for a high-risk merchant account?

Our customer service representatives can go through all the documentation we’ll need. For now, get the following documents found and kept in one place:

  • Business license
  • A voided check or a bank letter indicating you are in good standing. We can’t accept starter checks.
  • Copy of owner’s driver’s license or passport.
  • Three to six months of business bank statements.
  • Proof of website domain ownership. Screenshots are sufficient.
  • Business marketing materials.
  • List of products and services with pricing.
  • Written overview of business.
  • Resellers must provide any supplier agreements.
  • Those with a current merchant services provider need to provide 3 – 6 months of previous merchant processing statements.
