Debt Collection Merchant Accounts
Debt collectors have a tough job. We make it easier.
This merchant account category includes debt consolidation, refinancing, settlement and relief agencies. Healthcare, education, financial services, mortgage, home equity lines of credit, auto and credit card providers are the main stakeholders in third-party collection companies that take on the responsibility of recovering delinquent repayments from borrowers.
Financial institutions consider the debt collection industry extremely high risk because of its inconsistent cash flow, the sheer amount of individuals saddled with long-term debt and their inability to pay it off. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, 2017 marked the fifth year of continuous growth in total U.S. household debt. By the fourth quarter of 2017, household debt skyrocketed to $13.15 trillion—a $193 billion increase from the third quarter of the same year. Mortgages make up the lion’s share of the dramatic increase in a mere quarter.
