Open an Online Merchant Account - Your Road to Higher Profits
Your business is alive, but we can help it thrive.
There is a great possibility that most of your customers use credit cards to make online purchases, and not having an online merchant account means you are digging yourself a hole in the ground from the start.
At Cardinity we offer the most user-friendly and most cost-effective payment method for you and your customers.
What is a Merchant Account and why do you need it?
A merchant account is a special bank account that allows you to accept debit and credit cards on your web shop. It temporarily holds the money paid by your customers until it is transferred to your business account. Once you have set it up, you can receive payments from any corner of the world, irrespective of whether it’s from New Zealand, Peru or Iceland.
In order to get this opportunity, all you need to do is fill in an application form and wait for us to get in touch with you. After your merchant account is set up and your online shop is integrated with Cardinity, you can enjoy doing business.
Cardinity merchant account is provided for e-commerce businesses registered in the EU or EEA. Check our FAQ (What countries does Cardinity operate in?).
