Merchant Processing FAQs

What are merchant services?

Merchant services, put simply, are the tools needed for a business to be able to accept payments from their customers. Primarily used in businesses such as retail and food service, merchant services allow businesses to easily accept payment methods like debit cards, credit cards, and checks. 

The term “merchant” in this case simply refers to your business, whether you operate out of a brick-and-mortar storefront or sell your goods online. Merchant services can include payment processing services, fraud protection, and even a merchant account for depositing cash immediately after it is received at the point of purchase.

How do merchant services work?

Merchant services act as something of a middleman between your business and your financial institution. When your customers make a purchase from your business, your merchant service provider requests payment authorization from the bank your customer uses to pay for their goods, who then approves or denies the transaction. Merchant processing is used along the way to handle all needed communications between your point-of-sale and your customer’s bank, ensuring a smoother transaction and a much faster handling of any needed purchase data.

Do I need a merchant number to use merchant processing services?

Merchant numbers are used to process all types of transactions relating to your business, and are required to access merchant services. Each business is given a unique merchant number when they open a merchant account, and this number will be used during any needed merchant transaction your business encounters. 

How can I get merchant services for my business?

If your business needs a fast, efficient merchant processing solution to handle your customers’ payments, Genisys has the solution.
