The best way to get Squarespace high-risk payment processing is through Zen Payments. If you’re using the popular website builder to sell items in unique verticals, then you’ll need a custom merchant account and payment gateway.

Whether you’re a new business that found yourself venturing into the realm of high-risk industries, or have an established website, we have solutions for you. Fret not, because Zen Payments is here to lend a helping hand! In this guide, we're going to dive deep into Squarespace's high-risk payment processing, empowering you to accept many forms of payments, and describing how you can apply it to your website.

Squarespace High-Risk Merchant Account

So you realize you’re a high-risk merchant and you have a Squarespace website. Not a problem – high-risk industries like adult entertainment, online gaming, travel services, and CBD products may seem a bit daring, but there are entire banking channels based on helping you find solutions. While some payment processors might shy away from the risk on Squarespace, Zen isn’t one of them.

Aggregate Merchant Account Providers

Zen Payments is not an aggregate merchant account provider, meaning, we don’t group your account with others and approve you instantly. We build custom solutions around your business, and because of this, we have the ability to onboard a number of riskier industries just like yours.

So, you're all set to venture into high-risk territory? Awesome! But here's the deal – you need to take a deeper dive into Squarespace's Terms and Conditions. If you don’t qualify for their payment processing, then hop over to Zen Payments. Here you can share your vision, your goals, and all the amazing things you want to achieve. We’ll hook you up with the right criteria and guidelines to make your dreams a reality.

Mitigating Risks with Squarespace

When it comes to risks, Zen Payments has fraud prevention tools and secure resources that ensure safety for your transactions. It's like having an automated team check each purchase to make sure it’s legitimate.

Third-Party Payment Gateways

Third-party payment gateways are the plugins you implement in your website that connect your bank to the checkout page. These take care of the information exchanges that happen from customer information and your merchant account. These gateways are like the sidekicks to Squarespace, making sure you get the best of both worlds – their awesome website-building features and secure payment processing.
