    High risk merchant accounts and alternative payment processing

    We provide payment processing accounts and integrations for high risk or technical clients through our trusted ISO partners and banks. Our US and EU solutions are specifically tailored to working with Ecommerce-based hemp-based oil, digital assets and other alternative goods manufacturers and retailers.

    Even if you’ve already been shut down, we have a solution for you and encourage you to get in touch.

    We work directly with only a hand-picked, trusted and vetted payment processing partners and ISO to be sure they provide straightforward pricing, upfront business practices and agreements that you can understand.

    We work to make sure that you’re getting a fair deal and that you’ll be able to integrate the payment gateway seamlessly and successfully with your Woocommerce or Shopify store, typically via the and NMI plugins.

    And once we get you processing we can integrate it into your website and properly configure your risk and fraud settings in your account.

    We also help explain and help setup redundant and backup processing options so if one account is closed the next one is already operational and ready to go. The prudent high-risk Ecommerce vendor accepts this reality as a normal course of business and can work on the fly to adapt to new and changing situations. We can help and be your trusted partner.

    If you’ve ever had your account closed down you’ve experienced the panic that comes with losing 90% of your business overnight. This can be prevented and we’ll show you how.

    Also if you’re just getting started selling online, you need to be aware of the steps you need to take – and the ones you want to avoid – before you get started. This includes the choice of your web development platform and inventory and shipping systems.

    We’re happy to help explain the processes, procedures and prohibitions and guide you and keep you informed all the way from developing your website (if you wish) – or simply acting as your advocate agent and getting you set up with a high risk merchant account.

    Gateway Plugin Integrations

    No matter who you choose for your ecommerce merchant account, you’ll need to get it integrated into your Woocommerce store with a plugin. It can be a detailed, multi-step process, and complicated –  especially if you’ve never done it before. There’s configurations and setup required on both sides and it’s an exact process – and we can do it all for you. Also, the plugin may need some tweaks or customizations. In some cases, you may need a custom plugin of your own.

    For CBD clients in the US, there’s some things you must be aware of and some payment services you can not use, such as Stripe, Square and Paypal. You’ll need a high risk merchant account – and we can help you get those too.

    To get your payment processing setup, we’ll integrate a payment gateway that will connect your site to the merchant account. We will:

    • Let you know what plugins or systems you need for your gateway. You can’t always rely on the “free” ones and may need to purchase a paid version
    • Install the plugins
    • Configure your merchant account, API and Security Keys
    • Link your website to your merchant account
    • Configure your “risk settings” so you can follow best practice for preventing fraudulent transactions and chargebacks
    • Run test transactions
    • Make it all live

    Custom payment gateway plugins for Woocomerce

    We build and customize payment processing plugins for Woocommerce. We develop work-arounds for many of the most common bottlenecks or road blocks for getting paid for high-risk and alternative products like CBD, cannabis seeds and kratom.

    We can work with existing plugins to modify the code to meet your specifications. If needed we can build your custom payment processing plugin for woocommerce from scratch.

    Your payment gateway account typically connects to your website via an API/plugin which allows your Ecommerce system to securely send card data for transaction approval. Sometimes it’s super-simple and sometimes needs a little configuration or a lot.

    The exact amount of time it will take depends on several factors, but we’ll take a look at your current code, see how it matches with what is required, and then estimate the length of time it would take to get your CBD and high-risk transactions completed securely and to your merchant account’s liking.

    CBD payment processing

    Here’s a quick rundown of the steps we take to get started with payment processing for CBD, cannabis and smartshops in the EU.

    • Recommend the types of payment processing we think will suit your acceptable level of risk as well as what type of user experience you wish your customers to have
    • Explain all the ins and outs of high-risk processing – including important things to know, pitfalls and basic outlines of cost
    • Based on our discussion, you’ll fill out our onboarding documentation which we submit to our processing partners. The more thorough, detailed and strong the documentation, the faster it will move and the greater likelihood of acceptance
    • We’ll get you connected directly with the payment processing company to fill out all of the sensitive documentation
    • Upon acceptance, we will integrate the payment platform into your website
    • We can custom code the API or plugins as needed, based on your requirements
    • We will customize your gateway account with your company information in ways that help reduce chargebacks
    • We’ll optimize your credit card settings to avoid fraudulent transactions.

    Woocomerce Vs Shopify For High Risk Websites

    Where should you build and host your website? Woocommerce all the way. 

    If you build your high-risk website anywhere but Woocommerce, you run the risk of losing your site.

    Sites like Shopify have restrictive and ever-changing “Prohibited Items” lists that not only excludes specific products, but also ingredients within that product.

    They’ll either send you a warning letter, or shut your site down without notice. We’ve seen it happen all too often.

    Woocommerce, on the other hand, is open source and there are no prohibitions on what products you can sell and no one can tell you how to operate your site.

    And while Woo sites have a higher startup cost than Shopify you’ll save money in the long run with no subscription fees and a lot of free or lower priced Ecommerce plugins and extensions. Also, since you’re a high risk merchant you’ll already be paying 2% extra to Shopify to use a 3rd party payment system. 

    If you’re on the fence or not sure what platform to consider please get in touch. We’d love to hear about your plans and help get you started on the right foot.
