High Risk Merchant Services For Your Adult Website:
Full Service & Flexible Solutions

Legal age restrictions. Controversial content. Reputation concerns.

It can be challenging to find an adequate credit card processing solution for your adult entertainment business. Some acquiring banks are hesitant to accept adult merchants.

Fees usually run high for adult merchant accounts. However, with a merchant account from iPayTotal, you can qualify for an account with one of our offshore acquiring banking partners at an affordable rate.

iPayTotal Has Adult Merchant Account Solutions

Whatever form of entertainment your business offers, iPayTotal likely has a solution for you. Our adult merchant accounts cover most types of adult entertainment:

  • Streaming videos
  • Adult toys
  • Gentlemen’s clubs
  • Online dating
  • New Solution Enables Anonymous Payments

iPayTotal can offer adult content merchants many ways to accept online payments by credit card and check processing. In June of 2018, however, iPayTotal forged a partnership which enables consumers to pay for goods and services online via gift cards. The process is as follows:

  • The merchant acquires and places the widget of our partner on their checkout page.
  • The viewer clicks on the widget when checking out, and is directed to purchase a gift card from Amazon, Walmart, Target or Apple.
  • The consumer buys the gift card for the necessary amount of his purchase, and submits payment through the widget (keystroking in the gift card number and PIN).
  • The merchant can receive their payout in either ACH or cryptocurrency.

This solution is ideal for industries such as adult/emotional content, online gaming and gambling, CBD and hemp oil and many others. It also is beneficial for merchants who have difficulty getting a merchant account as well as consumers who are unbanked.
