What is the MATCH list? I haven't seen anything about this before until just now.

Jake, here are a couple of links to previous dicussions:
Terminated Merchant File/ TMF / Match List [webmasterworld.com]
Gateways and Merchant Accounts - Oh My! [webmasterworld.com]
<added> It is a database of *black listed* merchant account holders started by Mastercard but maintained by both Mastercard and Visa currently. </added>

Doing business properly, vetting transactions, and taking care of your customers.
And keeping in constant contact with your merchant account provider if you process a transaction higher than what you told them or if you might be going over your monthly limit.
Just take care of your business and it should not be a worry.

Corey, I agree. Thanks for that.
I think the business goal shouldn't be to struggle not to be listed as such, but to do business well to the best reliable way you can.

Request a dedicated manager for your account. That way the manager will get in touch with you on issues with your account before they get escalated to higher alerts. I think most MBs offer a didicated manager for volume more than 100k $ a month.
Also you dont have to go through regular crappy support when you want to get somthing done quick.

The only relatively good thing about TMF/MATCH list that it is not permanent. Merchant should be removed from there after 5 years.
I wish they offer "parole release" and "supervised processing" after 3 years :) LOL
