Merchant account

A bank account that allows businesses to accept payments, usually via a debit or credit card. A merchant account is established under an agreement between a merchant (trader) and a merchant bank for the settlement of payment card transactions. The agreement ensures that merchants follow operating rules established by card associations, like Mastercard or Visa. A middleman between the merchant and the bank facilitates transactions and routes credit card information to the right payment networks and merchant accounts.
