Acquiring banks, Payment Service Providers, ISO and MSPs have to identify and manage risk before accepting a business relationship with a merchant. The financial profile and true identity of the merchant has to be verified, such as the merchant’s financial history and track-record. The products and services sold on its website must be considered, as well as any terms and agreements. The delivery method a merchant uses and the expected transaction volume is also key data to analyzed. Collateral is determined based on a combination of such elements, when consolidated form the customer’s risk profile.
