Get a Merchant Account Fast! Using the Instabill Checklist

Guidelines for a Speedy Application Process

When applying for a merchant account, Instabill offers its merchant account application checklist, a list of documents required by our underwriting team. Knowing upfront which underwriting documents you will need to submit can expedite the process of obtaining a merchant account. Instabill underwriters accept the required documents all at once or in increments, so we can quickly and accurately match you with one of our banking partners.

Instabill Merchant Account Application Checklist

merchant account applicationThe required documents on the merchant account application checklist are referred to as Know Your Customer documents, or KYC documents. We use these documents to determine a business’ risk factor, which, in turn, helps acquiring banks set merchant account fees, payout schedule and more.

Each acquiring bank and credit card processor has its own list of KYC documents. Since we have a vast network of banking partners, our list may alter slightly. In most cases, however, Instabill requires our merchants to submit the following documents.

  • Merchant Account Application
  • Résumé or CV
  • Photo ID or Passport
  • Personal Utility Bill
  • Business/Marketing Plan
  • Processing History (Last 3 months)
  • Processing Bank
  • Supplier’s Agreements
  • Personal Bank Statements (Last 3 months)
  • Personal Bank Reference Letter
  • Business Bank Statement (Last 3 months)
  • Incorporation/Sole Proprietor Documentation
  • Articles/Memorandum of Association
