The merchant account and your business account will be remain separate; your merchant account will collect the credit card or ACH transactions, then link to deposit into your business checking account.
Usually accounts can be opened with 24 hours. However, the time it takes to establish a merchant account depends on several factors including: completeness of the application submitted, accuracy of the information provided and any required additional paperwork.

If you have a brick and mortar establishment, a credit card terminal will swipe your customers’ cards and process them through your merchant account. If not all of your business in is face-to-face, or the majority is done online, you’ll just need to get a payment gateway.
