What is a Merchant Account?

A merchant account is a form of bank account that allows businesses and organisations to accept payment by debit and credit cards and delivers funds to your business bank account

Your merchant account is now essential. It checks that a customer’s card details are valid and that they are good for payment. The payment is transferred to your Merchant Account and then onto your business bank account.

Payment Processing

First Payment Merchant Services are the go to company for customers in the UK looking for payment processing.

If you’re unsure of what payment processing is, read along. Payment processing is the entire process from you taking a payment from a customer using their credit or debit card. It will fire off a number of operations that results in a payment being declined or authorised.

These operations include security checks, a check on how trustworthy the transaction is, and communications. However, the sale isn’t actually complete until the money is in the bank. 

Our job is to ensure that all payments are processed quickly so that the customer can make their payment then move on without any issue.
