This policy shows which industries, products and/or services are outside of Oonex’s acceptance policy or that can only be accepted with the specific written approval from Oonex in exceptional circumstances. The classification is based on applicable laws, Card Scheme Rules and Oonex’s own risk tolerance.
Merchants falling into the Restricted Industries, Products and Services Category may only be accepted after written approval from Oonex’s Compliance and Senior Management (as a result of an Exception Merchant Approval procedure established by Oonex).
Merchants operating within the Prohibited Industries, Products and Services category are excluded from the use of Oonex’s merchant processing services and will not be provided with a merchant account by Oonex.
Disclaimer: The fact that Oonex might agree on a general or exceptional basis to provide its services for a particular business model, product or service type should not be interpreted as legal advice on the suitability of the Merchant’s operations. It is solely the Merchant’s responsibility to ensure that the goods sold and/or the services provided are legal and comply with all the applicable laws and regulations, including Card Scheme Rules.
Oonex can change this policy from time to time. Oonex can decide at its sole discretion to decline any merchant application even if a Merchant’s business model does not fall into the Restricted or Prohibited business category specified in this policy.
