Who are Merchant Advice

Merchant Advice was setup as a division of OCRO Ltd.

With experience as a digital agency and a SaaS platform developed for a high risk gaming niche we had overcome a variety of payment processing hurdles which we soon found where prominent within the industry.

We quickly realised our clients were significantly overpaying on their payment processing with terms that where damaging the scalability of their business – which is where we formed our connections with alternative banks and took action by comparing quotes to ensure our clients where continuously receiving a competitive payment solution at key stages of their growth.

These services are now offered to all merchant providers under Merchant Advice. We can work with you as an independent consultant to ensure your business receives the best rates and terms that are specifically aligned to your risk profile.

How Merchant Advice Makes Money

We earn a small commission from partner banks when a business signs up with one of their services. This helps us ensure that our services remain unbiased, enabling us to offer the best advice to our clients.

Our commitment to you is that we will never push a solution on you – instead, we work closely with you to understand your needs, before providing a tailored solution that fits best.

We believe in transparency and are always upfront about our fees and commission structure. Our services are free for merchants and they remain that way.
