What type of paperwork is involved?
Merchant account application. In this form, you will provide details about both your organization and yourself, including your address (business and personal), social security number, federal tax ID (if applicable), phone and fax numbers, email address, website address, bank account info, etc.
Personal guarantee. Most applicants are required to provide a personal guarantee before establishing a merchant account. Exceptions are public corporations and non-profit organizations.
Articles of Incorporation. All incorporated entities need to provide a copy of their Articles of Incorporation. Sole proprietorships are required to provide their “Doing Business As” (DBA) names. Individuals cannot set up merchant accounts.
Business license. If your line of business is regulated and requires a license or a permit, either a federal or a state one, you will need to provide a copy of it.
Business financial statements. Unless your organization has been formed recently, you may have to provide its financial statements (typically it is required that you produce financial statements for the two years preceding the application date). Typically financial statements are required from high-risk businesses.
Personal financial statements. Typically requested in place of business financial statements from sole proprietors, personal financials may also be requested in addition to them. Personal tax returns for the latest two years are usually sufficient.
Processing statements. If you are currently processing credit cards and are looking for a new service, you will be asked to produce your three latest processing statements.
Voided check. You will need to provide a voided copy of a check for the bank account that you want your money to be deposited into. The check must have your legal or “Doing Business As” (DBA) name printed on it. If you have not yet received your permanent checks, you will need to provide a signed bank letter stating your account details.
