Merchant Accounts

In comparison to business accounts, merchant accounts are dedicated to accept electronic payment transactions for merchants’ goods and services. In other words, if you sell goods on Amazon, eBay or other platform, or, alternatively, if you sell things online on your website, then you need a merchant account. In this way, your customers can choose to pay with a credit card from anywhere in the world, or use other alternative method. Businesses need to have business accounts to conduct administrative operations, such as paying to service providers, paying salary and accepting money for goods and services. Business owners can transfer money from merchant account to business account to withdraw money.

With Genome you would easily separate funds needed to conduct administrative operations and to receive income generated from your business.
