Domestic acquiring banks often decline international credit card transactions in case they are fraudulent. International banks, however, approve these international/foreign transactions.

Credit Card Processing With Offshore Merchant Account Experts

Offshore merchant accounts are often the ideal payment solutions for high risk businesses. Offshore acquiring banks tend to be more liberal with businesses with fewer trading restrictions and possible tax benefits. Therefore, offshore merchant accounts tend to get quicker approvals.

Instabill’s acquiring banking partners, each of whom operates under the guidelines of Visa, MasterCard, American Express and others, will link your website with its secure payment gateway and the shopping cart options best suited for your business.

Competitive Offshore Merchant Account Fees and Payouts

When considering an offshore merchant account provider, rates and fees can be the deciding factor. Instabill offers very competitive and reasonable offshore merchant account fees through its diverse network of acquiring bank partners. After being matched with the best acquiring banking solution for your business, the bank will establish a payout timetable as well as its fees based on the strength of your application. Whether you receive payouts on a daily basis (3 days in arrears) or weekly (1-2 weeks in arrears), Instabill guarantees approved funds on time. See our FAQ page about payouts.

Offshore Company Registrations

On many occasions, particularly in Europe, merchants who apply for an offshore merchant account need to register their businesses in the same country or region as the acquiring bank.  For company registrations, Instabill is your answer. Gone are the days when merchants could simply register in a European country without having a physical presence. EU regulations now mandate that a physical presence is among several requirements, along with:

  • Necessary staff: A director (required in the UK) as well as a shareholder and administrative assistant
  • Office phone number with staff to answer calls
  • Bank account with an EU bank
  • Annual fees and costs with registered office

The EU also recommends:

  • Warehouse and storage facilities
  • Account on staff or retainer
  • Additional bank accounts as needed

Through a partnership, Instabill can arrange for all of the above.
