What is a Digital Goods Merchant Account?
A Digital Goods Merchant Account, is a merchant account for businesses that provide digital goods and services. The most common types of digital goods businesses are businesses that sell gaming services, ebooks, web design, telecom, streaming media, digital content and digital downloads.
There are a few risk factors associated with digital goods merchants that put them in high risk category. Those risks include:
- Prevalence of ebook piracy.
- Subscription Model: Recurring billing subscriptions are often disputed by customers.
- “Friendly fraud”: Friendly fraud occurs when a customer tries to dispute a valid payment. This is common with eBook customers.
