Your Source For Document Preparation Merchant Services

Many law firms and other businesses that deal with document preparation have merchant accounts that are high risk. Often payment processing times can be slow, but Merchant Authority provides the fastest payment processing services for these accounts. They specialize in making sure your firm’s document preparation merchant account gets approved quickly. 

Law firms can make a very good profit from document preparation. There are many different services a law firm can offer document preparation for, such as:

Subscription Boxes

Will Preparation

Merchant Account Statement

Divorce Paperwork

Multiple Bank Merchant Solutions

Certified Bankruptcy & More…

When it comes to legal documents there are a lot more regulations in place. This may cause your firm to be considered high risk, which could slow down your payment processing time with other merchant services.

What Makes Document Preparation High Risk?

Businesses often face a lot of complications with document preparation and the laws surrounding it. Each type of document has its own set of rules and regulations. This causes a higher risk of getting hit with a legal concern or even a chargeback, which is why a lot of banks won’t want to deal with these companies. 

A lot of times people will contact the law firm for help dealing with a financial matter. Since the client is already considered high risk financially, the law firms often have difficulty finding a secure document preparation merchant service. It’s not just the client that banks consider high risk, there are other factors that could have your law firm red-flagged.

Mail Order & Telephone Payments

A lot of lawyers will send their clients a bill in the mail and the client will either mail them a check or make the payment by phone. Paying the bill in person is considered the most secure way to make a payment. The client usually isn’t physically present at the law firm to make the payment, which is why these types of payments are considered high risk. 

Some Clients Can't Pay

Legal fees are usually very expensive. Over the course of a project, the lawyer bills their client for the time spent working on it. The trouble comes from when a client is facing financially difficulties and can’t come up with the funds to pay their bill. When this happens a client is likely to file a dispute to have their bill lowered or to get out of it completely. 

Providing A Service

When it comes to providing a client with a service, the client can often hold back on their payment by saying the service was performed poorly or not performed at all. This makes it difficult for the firm when they are trying to collect their payment. 

Factors to Consider When Shopping for a High-Risk Merchant Account Provider

There are numerous payment processors in the market, which is why it’s important to perform due diligence before you choose your merchant account provider.

Some of the factors you can consider before you make a choice include:

Terms and conditions – Pay attention to the provider’s terms and conditions. Read them carefully and be on the lookout for any hidden costs.  Although high-risk account fees are higher than the cost associated with credit card processing services for low-risk businesses, ensure you read the terms and conditions to take note of any extra fees. Reliable providers like eMerchant Authority have pricing structures that are transparent with precise information about the costs.

Unfavorable contracts – Some document preparation merchant accounts providers will have unfavorable contracts that run for three to five years. Always read the contract carefully and understand how long it will run before signing it.

Experience and expertise – When shopping for a merchant account provider, go for a reputable firm that specializes in serving businesses in high-risk industries. Also, the provider should have a thorough understanding of the document preparation industry. As such a provider will give you a solution that meets your business needs.

Timely support – A good provider should be ready to offer you support in case something goes wrong.
