Gentlemen’s clubs oftentimes have trouble establishing a dependable and affordable high-risk merchant services account to accept credit cards. Most major payment processing platforms have strip clubs on their prohibited merchant type list and many more include them on their restricted merchant list meaning that getting approved for an account can be very difficult.

Your business really needs a high-risk merchant account with a provider that specializes in gentlemen’s clubs and other businesses providing adult entertainment.
