      A friend of mine is looking to lease my Merchant ID #. In return I will receive a monthly payment. Is this a scam? Will it affect my credit or other financial situations?

        Hi John,

        We would advise VERY STRONGLY against it. If your friend can’t get his own Merchant ID, there is probably a good reason.

          I’m still confused on how to obtain a merchant ID number when I don’t get a statement. Is it connected with my EIN number? How can I look it up? Please help

            Hi Vida,

            The MID shouldn’t have anything to do with the EIN. The EIN is for government/tax use, so it works more like a person’s social security number. Since you don’t get a statement, probably the best way to find out your MID is to just call your processor. Note that if you work with a third party processor like Square, you probably don’t have a MID because they keep track of their merchants differently.
            Hope this helps.
