It is vitally important to have a solid and credible working relationship with an acquiring bank for all PSPs in order to offer merchants a range of merchant accounts. Finding the most suitable bank to set up this working relationship can be a complex and rather stressful procedure, and so it is advised that PSPs obtain the help of a professional consultancy firm to locate and introduce them to a suitable acquiring bank.

What is the role of an Acquiring Bank

For a payment service provider (PSP) to offer merchant accounts to merchants they must first acquire a working relationship with an acquiring bank. The acquiring bank will enable the PSP to offer merchant accounts from the bank to a wide range of merchants. The acquiring bank is a vital component to the whole process of offering merchant accounts by a payment service provider.
