SEAMLESS PAYMENTS FOR THE ADULT INDUSTRY

Whether you are EU or offshore-based, MerchantScout can provide flexible payment solutions for your Adult-orientated business. Our Adult merchant accounts are built on networks connected with trusted acquiring banks. Pricing for these services is based on the interchange++ model in the EU, and blended rates for international merchants.

The Adult sector is a highly lucrative, niche industry; however, the unfortunate truth is that as a category it is automatically considered high-risk by acquiring banks. You can rest assured, though, that MerchantScout can offer specialized payment solutions to high-risk Adult businesses.

Merchant Review

"Our business has been considered as “high-risk” which made it impossible to get a payment system the usual way. We found MerchantScout at a time when we had lost all hopes. They spent time trying to understand our business and came back with a plan. In a very short time we had our account up-and-running. A big thank you to entire team at merchantscout.com"

Review

"I was having real trouble getting a solid payments service because of the specific nature of our business. MerchantScout was for us the biggest thing in 2013 to transform our company, and we couldn't be happier. I'd highly recommend MerchantScout to any businesses related to ours to give it a try."
