If your business is in trouble because of payment issues and high chargebacks, it’s considered high risk. PayPal and Stripe sometimes label specific businesses as high-risk, requiring unique payment solutions because traditional ones often avoid them.
But don’t worry! You have come to just the right place.
For business owners, it’s not easy to hear that their business is deemed risky. Many offer legitimate, effective, and successful products and services. Still, credit card companies and banks categorize them as needing high-risk merchant solutions. On the flip side, some businesses inherently carry high-risk profiles.
Some of the factors that label a business as risky are:
Merchants, who have high transaction rates, may be considered high-risk. If a merchant processes over $20,000 in payments per month, or has an average transaction of $500 or more, it may be categorized as high-risk.
If a merchant sells to consumers in countries with a high level of risk, they may qualify as high-risk. (any country except the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, and the countries in Europe).
If the merchant is new or has so little previous record, they may be considered high risk simply because they have no relevant record. On the other hand, If the merchant carries low credit, it may be considered high-risk.
While a merchant may have a flawless record, they may be labeled high-risk due to the industry they are considered to be less trustworthy than other industries.
High-risk businesses may find it challenging to access merchant services and financial products, impacting their operational capabilities.
High-risk industries often encounter restricted access to payment gateways.
These businesses often face higher processing fees and may be required to maintain rolling reserves, impacting their overall cost structure.

A business more likely to experience chargebacks, fraud, or financial failure is high risk. A merchant who does high-risk business is called a high-risk merchant. A high-risk merchant is considered high-risk when assessed by a processor or bank to pose a more significant potential for chargebacks and fraud. This determination can arise from the merchant’s operations within a high-risk industry, the sale of products or services that often result in chargebacks, or a history of fraudulent transactions.
A high-risk merchant account supports categorized high-risk businesses. Various factors can contribute to this classification, such as model and volume of the business, ticket size, transaction velocity, and being a new merchant with no prior payment processing history or operating in a high-risk industry known for fraud, such as those selling controversial products. As a result of this elevated risk level, high-risk merchant accounts are subject to higher processing fees to account for potential losses.
Merchants who handle many transactions or have a high average transaction value may be classified as high-risk. If a merchant processes payments exceeding $20,000 per month or has an average transaction value of $500 or more, they may be considered high-risk, including those who accept international payments.
