Set Up Timescales

Set up Time Scales

“Why lie about the application time? You'll know the truth 3 weeks later!”

Let's ensure there's speed

To reduce the chances of delays please ensure that all the appropriate information within the application is produced to the correct standards. Making sure everything required is together with the application from the start is key to getting going quickly. If any part of the application is not completed or documents aren't correct this stands to delay the process.

The application can take 2 – 4 weeks depending on the type of merchant account required. Each account will be looked at carefully to ensure that it meets the necessary criteria.
