Terms and Conditions for Opening a Non-Resident Merchant Processing Account in the UK
In order to guarantee you a fast-track account opening, we suggest you first take a look at the terms offered by this payment system. Just as with any other financial institution, the potential customer first has to undergo a verification/KYC procedure.
The UK payment system we recommend today only opens accounts for companies registered in Europe and the UK. No opening deposit is required. There are no requirements regarding the minimum balance. This means that a high-risk business can expect approval from the compliance department.
High-risk companies include the following business segments:
- gambling and gaming;
- Forex and financial services;
- dating and adult content;
- pharmaceuticals (licensed);
- alcohol and tobacco;
The geography of payments as well as the nationality and residency of the beneficiary are also important in assessing the risk.
