Merchant Accounts

Sellerdeck Payments integrates with all major UK merchant account providers and some minor ones.

Choosing the right merchant account provider is vital to your business. Sellerdeck has a close partnership with Elavon, one of the largest European merchant providers with over 1.2 million active merchants.

Using Elavon as your merchant account provider gives you a complete service using Sellerdeck Payments tightly integrated into Elavon.

  • Lloyds Cardnet
  • Diners
  • Elavon*/EuroConex/Alliance and Leicester

When setting up your merchant account you must ask:

  • Whether AVS is supported

To accept Amex you must have an Amex merchant account. Amex Merchant accounts can be obtained directly from Amex and in some cases through the primary acquiring bank although this tends to be more expensive. A separate connection to your Sellerdeck Payments account is required to support Amex. This can be done during your initial Sellerdeck Payments setup or added later for a small additional charge.

Laser, an Irish debit brand (it is supported via Allied Irish Bank)
Irish Domestic Maestro (it is supported via Allied Irish Bank)
JCB cards, Ulster Bank and First National are not integrated with Sellerdeck Payments

Accepted currencies

Sellerdeck Payments will support payments in pounds sterling, US dollars and Euros but you must have a merchant account capable of supporting the currency you wish to accept – contact your acquiring bank to confirm this. Each Sellerdeck website can accept a single currency and you will need a separate Sellerdeck Payments account for each currency.
