As a business owner, your personal credit can affect your operation in many ways. If you have bad credit, you may have trouble getting financing from a bank. Vendors and suppliers may also be leery of extending a credit line if you have a spotty payment history.

Merchants with bad credit can really struggle in getting a merchant account. They struggle because of the risk that the banks are taking on. When the bank sees a merchant with a poor credit score, high debt, and late payments on their history can make banks decide that they are not worth the risk even though they have business funding.
Whenever a merchant with bad credit applies for a merchant account, they will undergo an underwriting process that ultimately determines their approval despite all else.
