What is an internet merchant account?
To accept payments online you need an internet merchant account. This is required for all businesses that wish to process online card payments. If you do not have an internet merchant account you can use an online payment bureau.
Paysafe is an online Acquiring service and Bureau for the UK and EEA
We are one of the few payment service providers that can collect and process card details on behalf of the merchant without requiring an internet merchant account – an ideal choice for start ups who need to get started straight away.
