Episode 7 of the Ad Law Tool Kit Show, “Payment Processing,” is now available. Listen here, or search for it in your favorite podcast player.

For retailers, a key, back-end function you can’t do without is a solid merchant processing relationship to acceptance of payments. Robust merchant processing includes credit/debit card, ACH networks, and auxiliary services like analytics, dispute resolution, and security tools.

In this episode, I talk to Venable partners Ellen Berge and Andrew Bigart, who discuss the importance for merchants to understand the intricacies of compliance, risk management, security, and fraud prevention.

Venable’s Ad Law Tool Kit Show will help you and your organization identify and avoid potentially problematic advertising practices. Over the course of 12 episodes, we examine the increasingly complex regulatory landscape that governs the promotion of goods and services—from negative option marketing to copyright protection and influencer endorsements.

If you have specific questions after listening to this episode, don’t hesitate to contact me, Ellen, or Andrew to arrange a conversation. And check out more chapters of Venable’s Advertising Law Tool Kit.
