  • How do I set up a merchant account for the US, from a different country?

    I'm in New Zealand and want to sell in USD to Americans, and other markets for that matter.

    I was told by Braintree that:

    "In order to apply for a Braintree Merchant account out of any of these listed countries, your business must be located, registered, and have a business bank account all in the same country."

    Has anyone been through this process? Is it very difficult?

    I think offers processing for New Zealand companies.

      Thanks. But for New Zealanders wanting to sell into US in USD. I've asked but seems like I need to register a business and bank account. Has anyone gone through this process as an outsider? That Rdiogo.

        Izzy stripe has a new program where they will set up the company for you.
        AFAIK, no one will give you a MID if they don't think they can lay hands on the money.. So you need a US Bank Account, also just to receive the funds.

                If it's high risk you can just talk to the high risk guys. I'm sure they'll have access and knowledge about how to get signers. As well.
