Skip the mess and hassle of becoming a PayFac
To become a PayFac on your own, here are the things you must have and do before you earn one single dollar from processing:
Find a processor that will sponsor you as a PayFac with a member bank and the card associations.
Pass an extensive underwriting process.
- Cash Reserves
Put up significant cash reserves and personal guarantees with the bank or the processor. Secondarily, you must develop credit underwriting guidelines and anti-money laundering policies.
- Development Resources
You must have the internal technical resources required to manage settlement and funding to your downstream customers.
- Payment Expertise
Hire staff with payment experience in acquiring, risk and compliance, implementation, integration, support and operational infrastructure to support the day-to-day activities of the payments business.
Ensure that payments operations are in and remain in full compliance with PCI and other mandates from the card brands, which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.
But that all goes away simply by leveraging Usio’s PayFac-in-a-Box.
