How to: Get Your Merchant Application Approved

This is the third article in our series aimed at helping online merchants to get the most out of their Payza account. One of Payza’s goals is to help you sell your products and services online and open your business to the global marketplace. Today we’d like to help you to get your merchant application approved.

There are many benefits of having a Payza Business account. Online merchants using Payza are able to access a comprehensive suite of business tools such as Payment Buttons, Shopping Cart Integration and Corporate Disbursements.

What You Need to Know

Once you have signed up for a new Payza Business account or upgraded your existing Personal account, there are a few things you need to know to make sure that you can begin selling through your website with Payza right away.

1. Make sure you have all the documents you need to become verified. You need to submit documents to prove that you are running a business, even if you already have a verified personal account. The documents required vary depending on the type of business you run, so please read all the requirements carefully during the business verification process to ensure that you submit the correct documents.

2. Make sure your personal documents are up to date. Your ID must be government issued, valid (not expired) and your date of birth must be visible. Do not alter your personal documents in any way.

3. Make sure your business is compatible with our User Agreement. Some high-risk industries are restricted by Payza. For more information about what is and is not permitted, see the Payza Terms and Conditions.

4. Submit your website for a Website Review. Once your business has been verified, we will conduct a review of your website to ensure that it complies with our user agreement. When you have passed the Website Review process, you will be able to use Payza Payment Buttons and receive credit card payments.

If all of your information is in order, your merchant application will be approved in no time and you can start selling through Payza right away!

  • Can you provide a third party website review?

    • Hi Litebrite, I’m not sure I understand your question. At Payza we review the websites of all the businesses that want to incorporate Payza Payment Buttons on their sites ourselves. We don’t have third parties conduct reviews for us and we don’t act as third parties to conduct website reviews for sites not seeking to incorporate Payza Payment Buttons.
