Low risk offshore payment gateway

There are a lot of providers who offer the service of low risk payment gateway with affordable commissions. The financial institutions are the ones who evaluate the level of the risk of the payment gateway, depending on the nature of the business, average ticket and the number of monthly transactions the financial institution decides if the business falls into the category of low risk. Your commercial activity is considered low risk if your average ticket size is less than 100 USD, the number of chargebacks is close to zero and the company is incorporated in a low risk country. Also it is very important if the merchant uses an anti-fraud protocol installed in its terminal payment such as 3D Secure. Other factors that consider a financial entity as a low risk business is when the requesting company sells tangible services and the sales tickets are not of high amounts that could unleash a massive fraud in the virtual payment terminal.

The low risk payment gateway is a perfect solution for companies that have a low risk industry business. The commissions for processing these types of businesses are more affordable comparing to high risk. The main reason of such a difference is a percentage of fraud, which decreases considerably. Another factor is the way the order gets placed when a final client makes an online purchase. For example, on some websites the orders are placed through a shopping cart other businesses send payment links via email or collect the data of the cardholder by phone (MOTO). In a case of MOTO payments, the financial institution will automatically consider the terminal as high risk since it is impossible to justify the purchase made by the customer with a physical signature or by means of a 3D Secure PIN.

When reviewing the applications for low risk payment gateways financial entities do not accept businesses related to money laundering activities. In case the financial entity detects a business with irregular or considered risk activities, it will block the terminal and will include the company in blacklist so that it won´t be able to request any terminal in future.

Speaking about the best way to protect your online business and to avoid fraud in your terminal it is advisable to choose the 3D Secure anti-fraud protocol for your merchant. Due to the fact that the final client has to introduce the security PIN and to identify himself, the responsibility for any chargeback falls on the entity that issued the card with which the payment was made. That is to say, if a final client makes a purchase and then presents a chargeback with his credit card and argues that he did not make the payment or a third party did it without his knowledge, the entity issuer of the card will be responsible for the transaction and will not be able to claim any type of financial compensation to the payment terminal. In case if the product was not delivered to the client after he made a payment in an online store through 3D Secure protocol, the card issuing entity has a right to claim the whole amount to be paid back to his client.

Purchases made with cards are surpassing purchases made with other means of payments, such as cash, bank transfers, checks, Western Union, MoneyGram and Bitcoins. The main difference between accepting cards or alternative ways of payment is that when making a purchase through the payment gateway the final customer obtains more security and anti-fraud guarantees. It is advisable for any merchant who applies for a payment gateway to take the greatest precautions when making sales, as it will prevent the closure of your payment terminal.
