The Expert Market Verdict
Network Merchants' approval rating is extremely high compared to the industry average, meaning that people with poorer credit ratings will likely be accepted. Like many of their competitors they do not charge an application fee, but whilst many other merchant account providers use the Authorize.net gateway, Network Merchants use a private one.
Network Merchants Inc. specializes in e-commerce solutions, so the company is a better option for businesses based online rather than those with physical stores. Having said this the company has expanded its product range and now offers traditional retail and mobile payment solutions.
To start a new account, you can expect a start-up time of a day. Network Merchants also charge a $10 monthly fee.
All things considered, Network Merchants Inc. is a perfectly adequate provider to consider when looking for a trusted credit card processing supplier.
