- An online credit card merchant account allows your customers to pay you online by entering their credit card information directly into your website. This enables you the ease and convenience of accepting credit card orders without hassling your customers to fax, phone or mail in their orders. When you accept credit card orders through an Internet merchant account provider such as MerchantService.com, the transactions you process are approved in real-time. This means that the moment the customer checks out at your website the transaction is actually processed, and the money from the transaction is generally deposited into your account within 48 hours.
