What is High-Risk Merchant | chargebackhit.com

High-Risk Merchant

high-risk merchant is a merchant that the processor or bank believes is at increased risk for chargebacks and fraud. This may be because the merchant is prone to fraudulent transactions, belongs to high-risk industry, or the merchant’s products or services have a high chargeback rate. High-risk merchants pay higher processing fees and are often unable to open merchant accounts with many providers.
