What Are High-Risk Merchants?

Businesses considered high risk are typically in industries associated with high chargeback rates, lots of fraud, or ones that are heavily regulated. Some examples of high-risk industries are e-cigarettes, gambling, telecom, firearms, travel services, electronics, event tickets, dating websites, adult entertainment, direct marketing, nutraceuticals, web software development, international business, and furniture and jewelry online.
