Documents We Need to Get You Approved
Articles of Incorporation, Articles of Organization, or Business License
A set of formal documents filed with a government body that establish the existence of your corporation in the US, and are filed with the Secretary of State.
Voided Business Check (Or Bank Letter)
The business check needs to have your company’s name printed on the check. No temporary or personal checks. If you don’t have business bank checks, ask your business’ bank to provide you with a letter, on bank letterhead, with ALL of the following:
- Name of Your Business
- Business’ Bank Account Number
- Business’ Routing Number
- The statement: “This business’ account is in good standing”
- The banker’s contact information
- The banker’s signature
A color copy of Your Driver’s License or Passport
ID must be for the listed owner of the business. This same owner will sign the merchant account application.
3 Months Previous Business Bank Statements (or personal bank statements if new business)
Must be downloaded or scanned copies of the full monthly statement, not merely screenshots. These are available through your business bank’s online login and are also usually sent from your bank by mail each month. For new businesses please provide the last 3 months of personal bank statements for the signer / owner of the corporation.
3 Months Previous Credit Card or ACH Processing Statements (if available)
Must be downloaded or scanned copies of the full monthly statement, not merely screenshots. These are available through your previous/current merchant account provider’s online login, or by calling your old credit card processor. For new businesses, or if you haven’t accepted credit cards in the past, omit this requirement. If, however, your bank statements indicate you’ve accepted credit cards in the past, you cannot be approved without providing those documents.
