Setting Up an Online Dating Merchant Account

A lot of so-called e-commerce gurus tout the online dating business as fun. It must be, as countless new business-minded individuals come up with certain ideas for a dating website, apply for a high risk merchant account provider, and start earning money in no time. Or is it that easy? It would be a lie to say yes. There's no such thing as an easy money-making scheme. Nor will ever be. Everyone takes some pain if not during the set-up of the dating website, but in the process of maintaining it.

A Tale of Taking Chances

But why won't domestic banks take care of your business? The answer is truly simple. Let me tell you a story. A friend of mine, young, beautiful, and very engaging, joined a really popular dating website in the hopes of finding a nice guy online. She did it for fun, and not surprisingly, got a lot of responses for her profile and ad. So many men from all over the world sent her messages and tried to ask her out for a date. And yes, scammers too. She was even courted by a lesbian. She found all the responses exciting until one day she met the man she would marry not in the dating website she joined, but in another non-dating website relevant to her job. That man admitted he also joined a dating website, but met too many scammers so he quit his subscription. And while they were dating, my friend decided to quit her dating website membership too. Just like that. Why? Because she no longer needed it, having found the man that makes her happy.
