Transactions (See our Merchant Account Area)

True story... mid level brand CEO has a Flash Sale and uses his existing merchant account that he’s used for years with no issue. The sale is a huge success. He rakes in a million dollar sales day. Later that day he goes to access those funds so that he can transfer them to pay for the manufacturing of items sold during the Flash Sale. The merchant account blocks the transfer and withholds the funds for 6 months. CEO has to mortgage his home in order to pay for the manufacturing costs.

Most merchant accounts have a lengthy reserve hold, and most have security checks built in that actually shut the account down and prevent any transactions from going through when irregular activity is detected on the account, such as 25,000 sales within two hours from a Flash Sale.

The merchant account providers we work with have a 90% immediate release of all funds, plus they’ve done about 70% of the merchant accounts created for the largest Flash Sales. They understand the urgency of the application process as well as requirements and needs of the brand. Ask us to put you in contact with our preferred providers. Not only will you be in the hands of a provider with Flash Sale experience, but it’s likely you’ll save thousands of dollars in fees that your regular account or other providers will likely charge.
