Show Notes

In today's episode, we'll be exploring the concept of risk in merchant services.  Why do applications get declined in underwriting?  Why do merchants get terminated after they've been processing for a while.  It all comes back to risk, so we discus the different types of risk, what makes one merchant account riskier than another, and ways that you can help your chances to get riskier accounts approved.
