Savvy Site of the Week – Collection License State Laws


    Is your agency compliant when it comes to collection license state laws? It’s an important question to ask yourself – especially when it comes time to obtain a  payment processor experienced in the industry. Most acquiring banks will want to ensure you are appropriately licensed in the states your agency is conducting business in. As each state has different requirements, it can be cumbersome to ensure you are following the rules where required.
