The Green Sheet, Inc.Anyone want to chat?

I'm new to the payments business and have lots of questions. One of my colleagues told me you have a chat room where agents swap ideas about issues of interest to our profession. Could you tell me how to get in on the conversation?

Thanks in advance for your help.

The Green Sheet, Inc.Merchant reinstatement after MATCH

I am an avid reader of The Green Sheet, and I am a long-time, independent sales organization in the credit card processing industry.

I am trying to find some credit card processing companies that work with merchants who were placed on the Terminated Merchant File (TMF) or MATCH list.

A particular merchant that I am representing has been on MATCH since June 24, 2003, and his acquirer is unwilling to remove him, despite his having had only four chargebacks more than four years ago.

In the past, I have been successful in having ... merchants removed from MATCH, but this one is proving to be more difficult than the others.

I am keenly interested in the information that you can provide for me.

The Green Sheet does not keep a record of processors that help reinstate merchants from the Member Alert to Control High-Risk database (MATCH list), which contains information on merchants who have been terminated for cause.

Your best bet is to post this question on GS Online's MLS Forum, and see what our readers have to say.
