Matchmaking Merchant Accounts
Why is the Matchmaking Industry Labelled High-Risk?
There are several reasons that banks and payment processors have labeled the matchmaking industry high-risk, and most of them have to do with chargebacks. A chargeback occurs when a customer contacts their credit card issuer to reverse a charge, which can be for any of the following reasons:
- The customer didn’t receive the goods or service they paid for.
- The customer was charged the wrong amount.
- The customer did not authorize the charge or has had their credit card stolen/copied.
- The merchant offers recurring billing or free trials and the customer has forgotten about the charge.
The customer is being dishonest and is trying to get away without paying for goods or services they’ve purchased.
Unfortunately, in the matchmaking industry in particular, the last two reasons are among the most common. Many online dating services and matchmaking merchants offer free trials that automatically bill after a certain period or monthly/annual recurring billing plans. Most companies who feature business models like this are considered high-risk for the simple fact that chargebacks tend to run high under these circumstances.
Another major contributor to the high risk of chargebacks within the matchmaking industry is the instance of cheating spouses who request to have their purchases reversed after their partner finds the charge on their credit card statement. It’s not uncommon for a cheating spouse to pretend they know nothing of the charge and claim it was processed fraudulently to avoid getting in trouble.
In addition to the high risk of chargebacks, the online dating and matchmaking industry are common fronts for organized crime and human trafficking. Even though most merchants are honest, criminals have ruined the industry’s reputation and created a risk that banks and traditional payment processor’s aren’t willing to take.
