Why Are Insurance Companies Considered High-Risk?

Why Are Insurance Companies Considered High-Risk?

Many merchant service corporations have chosen to avoid dealings with businesses in the warranty and insurance sectors, mainly due to three central reasons: Firstly, many warranty services operate and handle transactions online or via telephone conversations (using virtual terminals). The perception of such virtual terminal sales within the merchant services is generally "high risk," mainly because the card and cardholder aren't physically there during the transaction. Secondly, it's commonplace for warranty and insurance providers to experience somewhat higher chargeback rates. This often happens because clients become upset when their claims aren’t sanctioned or due to other difficulties.

Lastly, a handful of problematic entities have increased the industry's risk (from a merchant services perspective) for financial institutions. Unlawful insurance companies have resulted in fewer banks and processors wanting to collaborate with these businesses. As a consequence of these three potential hazards, numerous merchant service providers decide to reject any warranty or insurance businesses, irrespective of whether they sell their services tangibly in stores, over the Internet, or even through phone interactions.
