People have been trading stocks since the 12th Century in France. Today, stock brokerage firms have advanced so much that you can accept credit card payments online as well as over the telephone. However, acquiring banks consider stock brokers high risk since they often handle large ticket transactions and there is no tangible product. Whether you are already a successful stockbroker or you need a way to expand your firm, one thing is certain: You need a secure, reliable, and affordable stock brokerage merchant account—and Instabill can help.

Credit Card Processing for Stock Broker Merchants
We understand that you serve many clients, which is why we strive to fulfill your business’s needs. Our credit card processing solutions have no volume caps and can support large ticket transactions. You can also process credit cards in real time with an immediate notice of transaction approval or decline.
Offshore Merchant Accounts in Tax-Friendly Countries
As an additional solution for our high risk merchants, we can provide offshore merchant accounts in tax havens to stockbroker firms. Our offshore banking partners have fewer trading restrictions and are willing to accept the risk for your business. If you are interested in an offshore merchant account, please tell your Instabill account manager.
Fees and Payouts for Stock Brokerage Merchant Accounts
Once we match you with an acquiring bank, your bank will determine your merchant account fees based on your industry, credit card processing history, chargeback risk, and the overall strength of your application.
Instabill distributes payouts on time, every time. Based on your merchant account payout schedule, you will receive a settlement for your approved funds day (three days in arrears) or weekly (one or two weeks in arrears). Your acquiring bank will determine your payout schedule using the same factors as determining your merchant account fees.
