High Risk Check Processing
GFS International uses the most current technology allowing merchants to easily accept and rapidly process checks entirely online. Eliminate the risk factor of using ACH. ACH transactions can take 3 to 7 days to clear an account.
The GFS International system verifies account data in near real time and debits consumer account the same or next day. Know the status of the check prior to shipping goods. Increase cash flow and customer service.
By knowing the status of the check sooner than ACH, merchants can ship goods quicker thereby increasing customer satisfaction.
The system is not governed by NACHA rules, therefore merchants do not have the constant worry of your account being terminated if you have more than 1% return rate. We understand the nature of many businesses simply cannot adhere to this strict standard.
Again, because this system is not ACH, we can work with non US Corporations and High Risk Merchants normally turned away. Fill out the attached application and begin processing checks. Some of our check processing features are listed below:
- Access to more consumer and business checking accounts.
- Lower cost than processing credit & debit cards.
- No association regulations such as NACHA or Regulation E.
- Any customer who has ever paid a bill with a check will understand this system.
- Automatic recovery for NSF items.
- No written authorization is required from the consumer.

WHY IS AN ACCOUNT CONSIDERED A HIGH RISK MERCHANT ACCOUNT?
Many banks or processors consider certain types of business models to expose the bank or processor to higher levels of risk. Some of these business types include: travel merchant accounts, timeshare merchant accounts, adult merchant accounts, loan modifications, call center merchant accounts, collection agency merchant accounts, telemarketing merchant accounts, various internet merchant accounts, and many more.
The banks consider an account a high risk merchant account based on the potential for excessive chargebacks, un satisfaction of the products and services, excessive returns, quality of the product and services offered for sale, long time period to fulfill the order, financial liability that the bank or processor will incur for processing for the merchant, or bad publicity towards the bank for accepting certain types of businesses.
We can provide you with a high risk merchant. At GFS, we will first review your business model to determine if we can place it in the USA. If we cannot place your account in the USA, we will obtain an offshore merchant account. In addition to an offshore merchant account, we will work with you on your business model, processing procedures, etc. to change your high risk classification to an acceptable classification to process in the United States.
