Traditional accounts with equipment: mostly used for retail businesses in which the operations are processed through a personal interaction;
Mail or telephone order (MOTO): these accounts allow phone based or direct mail order processing for clients who are able to purchase the product or service from home;
Internet-based merchant accounts: these have a mid-range cost connected with them;
