What to Expect When Signing Up With Us
As an online merchant, you will have many features available to successfully receive payments. Our services offer many features such as email invoices, click to pay links and buttons, and recurring transactions and billing.
As a business that sells products such as tobacco, e-cigarettes, cigars, and pipes, having a specialized merchant account will allow your business to operate without any issues whether your business is a retail storefront or e-commerce store. Traditional banks are not likely to improve businesses that sell products such as hookahs and electronic cigarettes and accessories due high-risk issues and a specialized merchant account is specialized for businesses such as yours .
In addition to high chargebacks, some banks may consider these businesses liabilities due to certain factors such as age restrictions. Unfortunately , in the smoke shop and tobacco industry, chargebacks are high and processors view them as bad and are likely to deny these businesses when trying to obtain merchant accounts. Some businesses may feel that if they are able to get a merchant account, they will be stuck with high fees. However, despite being high-risk we have helped businesses like these get approved for high-risk merchant processing accounts.
While payment processors such as Square, Stripe, PayPal or other credit card merchant account services may be convenient, many of them do not work with high-risk merchants. For example, some high-risk merchants may experience being approved by PayPal at first, but shortly after they may find themselves with a frozen account and PayPal removing them from the platform without notice. However, this is where we can help and are the perfect solution when looking for a payment processor to work with your high-risk business. We have years’ experience working with high-risk industries and are committed to getting you approve for a merchant account so your business succeeds.
