What am I applying for?

A Corduro account includes a gateway account for processing payments and possibly a merchant account that is similar to a line of credit. If a merchant doesn’t deliver or poorly delivers on the products / services sold, the merchant account provider is financially liable to all the cardholders. There are a few billing methods and business models that greatly increase risk, especially with new businesses. Here are some examples:

  • Quarterly / Annual billing
  • Aggregation – accepting payment for a third party
  • Retainer / Account Credit – Advance payment for future service


We can work with any of the above mentioned billing methods. Your business will just need to demonstrate the financial strength to support the increased risk.

Do I qualify for an account?

Here’s what you will need to get started
  • Your contact information
  • Your business information including tax identification number
  • Include a copy of a voided check or bank letter
  • 1 month of processing statements (for existing merchants only)
  • Approval typically happens within 1 business day once we have all information



We provide merchant services for nearly all industries, with a few exceptions, including adult, gaming, liquor, online dating, debt consolidation, credit repair, and bankruptcy attorneys, for example.

Merchants in these industries can use Corduro as a gateway only with the exclusion of adult or alcohol related business.

What payment cards do you process?

We process all the major card brands; Visa, MC, Discover, American Express, Diners Club and JCB from anywhere in the world. You can process one off transactions, recurring billing transactions, verifications and refunds using our Merchant Portal or APIs. We handle this for merchants with one or more merchant accounts.
