When a business wants to accept credit cards as a form of payment, they must open a merchant account with a payments provider. As part of the approval process, the payments provider verifies the legitimacy and operational status of the business. A crucial step in this verification is completion of a physical, on-site verification. The fastest, most effective and thorough way to obtain such verification is to hire Metro Inspections, an unbiased, third-party on-site verification provider with an in-depth understanding of the industry-specific concerns, along with a national network of well-trained, vetted professional inspectors. Metro Inspections will assign an inspector to visit the business location, make several observations about the
business, such as the accuracy of the location address, the type of business being conducted at the location, what type of signage is present and whether it matches the business name. While on site, the inspector will also look to substantiate certain representations made by the business that is applying for the account and take several photographs to reinforce their findings. Metro Inspections will then analyze, scrutinize, and compile the results in order to submit them to the client through its state-of-the-art Inspection Management System. The payments provider is then able to assess the findings as they make final determination on the approval of the application for merchant services.
