The world has come a long way in its worldview until it recognized that the adult industry is also good for people, like online education. Thanks to her, sexual crime, the number of divorces due to an unsatisfactory intimate life decreases. But the same cannot be said for banks and other financial institutions that are still reluctant to provide their services for businesses operating in this niche.
Many banks and financial institutions refuse to open accounts and process transactions for owners of porn sites, online adult toy stores, dating sites, strip clubs and other similar institutions. There have also been cases that banks have already blocked accounts of owners of such businesses already opened with them and frozen funds on them without prior notice.
Why were you refused to open an adult merchant account?
The adult entertainment industry is a completely legitimate business. But he still constantly faces financial constraints and outright discrimination.
For some reason, many bankers believe that porn sites and the sale of sex toys is illegal, ugly, immoral and use their capabilities to block such activities.
So, why do reputable bankers refuse decisions on adult merchant accounts?
Like some other types of business (gambling, selling marijuana, etc.), the adult entertainment industry has difficulty obtaining a plastic card processing service for the following reasons:
- because of the products and services that are offered in this business niche;
- banks do not want to risk their business reputation in order not to lose many of their business partners and customers;
- there are strict bans on the processing of credit cards of business owners for adults at partner banks;
- the somewhat controversial and uncertain nature of the adult industry business brings a certain amount of risk for banks as well;
- anonymity of transactions that are inherent in this business causes a large percentage of returns;
- high risks associated with the fact that often payments in the entertainment industry are based on a subscription;
- the presence of unresolved legal issues, as well as large volumes of transaction processing.
All this leads to the fact that it is difficult for a business in the adult entertainment industry to get a merchant account from regular banks.

How do you prevent chargebacks in your adult business?
Chargebacks are a huge problem in the adult entertainment industry. The anonymity of the transaction makes it very difficult to track the buyer and it is easy for him to tell that it was not they who made the purchase and demand to return the money debited from their bank cards.
Adult business owners can mitigate the risks associated with refunds – chargebacks. Here are some steps you need to take to prevent chargebacks in your business:
- Send a clear invoice to the buyer when making a purchase, including the company name, date of transaction and contact number.
- Automatic email confirmation of payment upon completion of the transaction.
- Offer refunds if a consumer disputes a purchase.
