    Payday lenders are considered high-risk and not supported by traditional banks for payment processing. As trying as this can be, especially if running an establishing and reputable business, there are a few common characteristics that define a high-risk venture:

    • Servicing customers prone to fraud or returns
    • A negative perception of the industry as a whole
    • Relatively high chargeback rate (over 1% monthly)
    • High traffic with large ticket sales
    • Highly-regulated industry
