How many merchant accounts can you obtain?

A merchant account is an agreement between a merchant and an acquiring bank. It allows the bank to process and accept credit card payments. By signing this agreement, a merchant agrees to abide by the operating regulations established by Visa, MasterCard, or any other payment company.
