When you connect with BlueSnap’s Global Payment Orchestration Platform, we provide you with the merchant account.

All businesses looking to sell products online need to open a merchant account to accept card payments. A merchant account is an account provided by your payment processor that receives the funds from your card sales. Once the funds have been deposited into your merchant account, they are then transferred to your normal business bank account, where they can be withdrawn.
