Will Forte process ACH and credit card payments for my type of business?

Forte loves working with a variety of merchants; however, we cannot process payments for  businesses on our Prohibited Merchant list. We derive this list both from our banking partners and our own experience with losses in certain industries. The list below displays the types of businesses that Forte will not work with regardless of their use of services (e.g., payroll, service fees, etc.). If you have additional questions about this list, contact Forte Sales
