Requirements for obtaining a merchant account with your bank

Some payment providers such as DPS Payment Express and eWAY allow you to accept payments from your customers quickly, easily and securely by credit or debit card. In order to accept payments using these providers you will need to apply for a merchant account with your bank (if you are unsure which providers require a merchant account you can check this here).

In order for your bank to allow your business to use their merchant services you must complete the steps below:
  1. Custom payment method
  2. Business/trading name and contact details
  3. Delivery times and methods
  4. Terms & Conditions and Returns Policy
