What is a merchant account (and why do you need one)?
A merchant account is a special type of bank account that allows retail stores, restaurants, and other business types to accept payments made via credit card, debit card, or mobile wallet. It acts as an intermediary between your business and the card-issuing banks.
Merchant accounts (or third-party equivalents) are required for card acceptance. Without this type of account, your business will be limited to cash or checks.
