Making porn presents a lot of challenges on the front and back end, no pun intended. One of the areas where you should not have to contend with endless issues is payment processing. Unfortunately, many payment processors will have nothing to do with the adult industry in general, whether it is porn in the downloadable sense, sex work or even products that are concerned with sexuality. Fortunately, Painless Processing can help by allowing you to accept payments in a variety of ways.

 

Why Adult Merchant Accounts are Considered High Risk

Many merchant services companies won’t touch the adult industry for several reasons. For one, there are the potential legal issues associated with sex work and how easy it is for minors to access adult content. In a world where a few keystrokes can lead to all sorts of content ranging from softcore to unbelievably hardcore and fetishistic, payment processors see nothing but risk.

 

Getting an Account Can Be Challenging

There is also the issue that not all porn producers and cam workers are legitimate. It only takes a small number to spoil the entire industry for everyone, and chargebacks are a rampant problem among fraudulent operators. This is why many of the largest processors, including Paypal, will not do business with anything that concerns sexuality even if your operation is completely legal and above board. Worse, if you are accepted by a more traditional payment processor, they may cancel your account and blacklist you with credit card companies if you receive more than a minimal number of chargebacks.

 

Your Adult Merchant Account is Money in the Bank

There was a time when most any kind of business could be run on cash, checks and money orders. Unfortunately, the Internet is too large and powerful to ignore. You have the potential for huge amounts of recurring business, and not accepting digital payments can be the kiss of death. No matter what niche you serve, your customers want what they want as quickly as they can get it — not within however many weeks it would take for a money order to arrive, be processed and clear.

 

The Painless Difference

Painless Processing helps to mitigate chargebacks and ensures PCI compliance. This eliminates two of the biggest risks your adult business can fall into when accepting digital payments. This also helps your customers be more satisfied because they know their information is safe and that they will only be charged when they know what they are getting. You get all of this for a reasonable, clear fee structure.
