Do I Need a Physical Location?

One of the common questions we receive when dealing with new merchants is, “Do I have to have a physical location in addition to my online store?”

We try to make things as easy as possible for you. Not only do we have solutions for retail-only merchants, we have solutions for eCommerce focused businesses and merchants who sell on every channel they can!

If you only have an online store, the application process is extremely simply. We can get you set up with the basic documents. In regards to the main question of this post, we get merchants who are concerned about their account status when they decide to open a physical location.

If this is the case, you’ll have a few options. You can open a new merchant account for the physical location. You can also edit the payment methods for accepting payments (retail vs online). Either way, we give you the options and can weigh out these changes with you, making the process as easy as possible – as it should be.
