WASHINGTON, Oct. 21, 2016 — The Electronic Transactions Association (ETA), the global trade association representing the payments technology world, today released new Payment Facilitator Guidelines offering guidance and practices to these new entrants regarding settlement, registration, funding delays, fraud, security, and related issues. Authored by Double Diamond Group on behalf of ETA, these new guidelines will help promote the growth of the Payment Facilitators segment as it brings new technology companies into the payments industry. The Payment Facilitator Guidelines will be the cornerstone of benefits for companies that join ETA, the trade association of the payments industry.

Payment Facilitator Guidelines include:

  • Guidance for underwriting submerchant accounts;
  • Enhanced underwriting due diligence for submerchants;
  • Guidelines for risk management of submerchant accounts;
  • Risk management guidance for submerchants requiring enhanced due diligence

“Payment Facilitators are facing dynamic changes in most every facet of their business,” said Todd Ablowitz, CEO of Double Diamond Group. “I’m excited to work with ETA on this project that will help ensure the success of this rising segment of the payments industry.”
