Anyone know if a merchants account is needed to create this account?
This will help me decide between modernauthorize, or echo inc.

I am looking at ECHO now. If you go with them you will get a merchant account with their bank. So far I have heard mostly good things. If you go through a reseller you can get in for a $99 setup fee and $10 min monthly fee. They also have quite a bit aof documentation for using the API.

actually. I might as well just go with modernauthorize. I think they will go better with modern bill

Yeah I think modernauthorize looks good. If you using modernbill already, I think it is the way to go. Integration support direct from the source.

Echo says that they don't charge monthly fees, but they don't tell you that the bank they make you use does. They made me use some weird bank that didn't have any local branch, and when I asked them if I could change to my own bank they first wouldn't even respond to me, and then when they finally did they made me fill out some paperwork and then finally denied my request. The bank they made me use was awful.
Neither Echo's statements nor the weird bank account's statements had accurate information. Neither itemized the payments I collected, so reconciling the accounts was a nightmare. Also if there was a chargeback or fee they wouldn't include that in their statements. Very difficult to run an effective accounting department when dealing with such an awful merchant account.
Avoid Echo at all costs. Trying to save a few dollars wound up costing me thousands.
