Adult Entertainment

T1 Payments offers state-of-the-art solutions for adult entertainment merchant accounts that are easy to set up, flexible to your needs, and backed with expert support to get you running quickly.


If your business involves adult-only entertainment goods and services, you are automatically branded as a high-risk merchant by any financial institution or payment service provider. Many traditional banks and payment providers do not offer adult entertainment merchant accounts because of their corporate culture or shareholders, preferring not to be associated with any business that involves adult entertainment because they deem it taboo.

Adult entertainment businesses experience sudden terminations of their adult entertainment merchant accounts, as well as freezes and holds on their funds more often than many other businesses.

What often happens is a payment provider offers you a merchant account and later realizes that you provide adult entertainment services, terminating your merchant account and freezing your funds for an indefinite period of time. Furthermore, it can be difficult to find not only a merchant account, but also secure an adult payment gateway that will integrate with your shopping cart.
