California is most noted for its promotion of beach culture, and perhaps no city in the Golden State exhibits more of that ethos than San Diego. It sprawls across almost 400 acres and cozies up to some of the most beautiful coastline in the world. Over 34 million tourists come to the City in Motion each year to frolic on the sands of iconic Mission Beach and play in the amusement park on the nearby boardwalk. In addition, San Diego has multiple wildlife attractions for visitors to enjoy. People can view the animal shows at the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and SeaWorld San Diego. They can also take in a number of California’s most dazzling natural parks like La Jolla Cove and the spectacular Sunset Cliffs, or jump across the border to spend a day in Mexico.
All these fabulous enticements bring hundreds of millions of dollars into the local economy with much of that money going into the accounts of the city’s merchants. Some, however, are missing out on that wealth because they cannot accept credit card payments for a variety of reasons. They may have bad credit, be a new business, or conduct trade internationally, which could earn them a high risk rating from most credit card processing companies. Once a vendor receives such a label, it becomes much harder for them to obtain an online merchant account that would allow them to process cards. If credit card processors do give a risky venture an account, it can come with some strict stipulations. For example, the processors may not actually open a private account for the business in question. Instead, they may force the business onto their own merchant account as a third party, and then charge it excessive fees for using that account to process payments.
