How to Become an Acquirer

Faster Settlement,  Set your own Risk Policy, Onboard Merchants Without Delays.

For ISOs and PayFacs, the frustration of being dependant on acquing banks often leads to the question, “How can I become an acquirer so I can issue my own merchant accounts?”

With an acquiring license and principal card scheme memberships, you can settle merchants directly and get to determine your own risk appetite. There will no longer be the need to pitch merchants through another firm’s onboarding process and chase their onboarding team for approval… or even for a declined response.

If you want to be a merchant acquirer, Authoripay can help by getting you your own card scheme memberships. We have helped many of Europe’s most well-known card issuers and acquirers to take their product in-house,  increase their profitablity and lower reliance on underperforming partners. We help you put together an application to the card schemes, that will be approved – and we guarantee it.

AuthoriPay have built up a robust network of scheme partners to help you expand your payment acceptance to cardholders venturing in from outside Europe.

Most firms find applying for a single scheme license to be daunting and unmanageable, let alone five. But AuthoriPay can take out the stress by:

  • NOutlining your individual business case per scheme
  • NWorking with you on your approach to merchant risk
  • NLeading you through BIN and settlement implementation
  • NSubmitting the full application for each membership request
