Web Site Merchant Account Requirements

Below are the requirements we've received from a vendor that provides merchant services. They need to check your website for these thing (all or most may be required) in order to approve you to sell products on the Web:

A Web Site operated by a Merchant, Sponsored Merchant, or Internet Payment Service Provider must contain ALL of the following information:

  • Complete description of the goods or services offered,
  • Returned merchandise and refund policy

    • Consumer data privacy policy – A privacy policy is required for accounts that are processing via ecomm, AND for those merchants that collect information for manual processing of the sale at a later time.The privacy policy is required only if the information includes a card number.If the merchant is only collecting name, address, etc, a privacy policy is not required.
