12) I currently am using iPayments or WorldPay to process orders through my business. Can I switch over to process my business orders through 5LINX/Century Payments?
No. If you are currently processing through iPayments or WorldPay, you would be considered an existing customer. Unfortunately, 5LINX/Century Payments cannot set up service for existing customers.
13) Can I sell Century Payments to any type of merchant?
No. iPayment recognizes that certain types of merchants carry more risk than others, or require specialized expertise to monitor merchant activity and control risk. For these reasons, the following merchant types are generally excluded unless specific approval from management is obtained for a particular account. This list is not meant to be all‐inclusive. Other types of products and services may be declined due to their nature. Accounts will be reviewed on a case‐by‐case basis:
- Animal Sales and Breeding
- Any Product / Service Considered Illegal
- Collection Agencies
- Gaming, Lottery or Raffles
- Pawn Shops
- Sexually Explicit Products and Services
- Travel / Tour Agencies
14) What type of deposit efficiency will be granted to the merchant through 5LINX/Century Payments?
In terms of funding, a merchant should batch out every evening and funds may be in the account the next day. This depends on the merchant’s bank and the merchant’s credit score. Most businesses are approved in underwriting for next day funding, but some have a one day delay due to credit/risk.
15) When can I speak to someone about setting up Century Payments through 5LINX?
Our Century Payments Experts are available Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 7:00PM EST and Saturday from 9:30AM to 4:30PM EST.
16) What does “Monthly Processing Volume” mean?
Monthly processing volume: Gross monthly credit card sales (dollar amount) that are declared by a merchant.
17) What is the difference between Keyed and Swiped?
Keyed/Swiped: Keyed means the card number, expiration date and other information is typed (keyed) in. This generally applies to online businesses where the physical card is not in hand or available. Swiped means the credit card is swiped through the terminal/card reader.
18) Where can a merchant find answers to questions surrounding equipment, batching, deposits, or shipments?
Please refer to the Congratulations Email or the Welcome Kit that is sent out after an application is processed and approved. There is a list of phone numbers that will help the merchant get the answers he/she needs.
19) What is the MATCH file?
The MATCH file is a database file that identifies terminated merchants. The merchants on the MATCH file were terminated because they did not honor the terms of their credit agreements so the creditor reporter the default to a credit reporting agency. If a merchant appears on the MATCH list, then it is highly unlikely that the merchant will be able to get a future merchant account application approved. The MATCH file is essentially a blacklist from merchant processing.
20) Why am I being required to fax in more statements?
Based on the information submitted, you may be required to submit more statements in order to get your applications through. This will help to prevent an application from being held in underwriting.
21) What if 5LINX/Century Payments can’t beat the rates of a prospective lead?
If they submit a statement over $10,000 and we can’t beat their rates, we will send them a $250 prepaid visa card for letting us try.
22) Am I offered a Visa Rewards Card for signing up with 5LINX/Century Payments?
It depends. If you are currently processing under $10,000 a month or a new processor you are eligible for a $100 Visa Rewards Card. You will be mailed a rebate form within thirty days of activating your account. Simply fill this form in and fax or mail back to 5LINX and we will have your card issued and mailed to you.

Now you’re business is (really) going somewhere.
