Recurring Billing Options
Many online wine merchants offer a wine of the month club package that sends monthly products to customers and bills them on a recurring basis. For this business model, Instabill recommends our recurring billing processing options. Each week, month, quarter, or year, funds from customers will be automatically collected through your merchant account. Ask a merchant account specialist for your options regarding recurring billing.
As a merchant in the e-commerce world, you are susceptible to cybercrimes like data breaches and credit card fraud. Because of this, the team at Instabill always stresses the importance of being PCI compliant. If you process with us, your website will be connected to the PCI compliant payment gateway of your new acquiring banking partner, giving you added protection against hackers and cyber thieves.
This type of payment processing is quickly emerging as a merchant favorite. With no credit card numbers involved, ACH processing is a reliable and seamless method to draw funds from customers’ bank accounts, with just a one to two business day turnover. ACH processing may also be a great option for merchants who send monthly products to subscribers.
Online Wine Merchant Account Rules
In order to maintain that legal age drinking laws are not being broken, Instabill’s acquiring bank partners require that online wine merchants meet the following rules:
- Online wine merchant website must feature an age verification portal before users enter the website.
- The payment or checkout pages must feature a checkbox indicating buyers are at least 21 years of age.
- The online wine merchant must use a shipping company that is capable of checking buyer’s identification upon delivery. This step is crucial and must be communicated clearly.
If you have any questions about these merchant account rules, contact one of our merchant account managers.
