Documents Required for Kentucky CBD Merchant Accounts

Here’s what paperwork Kentucky CBD Processing needs from your business:

Because we believe in complete transparency, our relationship with the domestic, US-based processor requires that all Kentucky-based businesses submit the proper documentation to apply for Kentucky CBD Merchant Accounts.

This documentation is securely transmitted to the processor. When it is received by the processor, their risk and underwriting departments will review the submitted documents and make a decision on the account. The processor uses a variety of factors to determine whether or not to approve the merchant account. Providing as many of the required documents as possible will help speed up the decision process.
