Pharmacy Merchant Account

Pharma merchants are considered as a special category with worldwide acquiring banks thus having many restrictions and additional terms to comply with. In the last years these can be placed only through offshore banks and with our broad relations with networks of acquiring banks in EU, including offshore jurisdictions for special pharma merchant cases, we can arrange a merchant account with your own MID/billing descriptor with no volume limitations.
