Adult toy credit card processing for VirtueMart
Finding the ideal way to accept debit and credit card payments for vibrators, dildos, and more adventurous adult toys like sex swings and dolls can be challenging. Finding the right information is hard enough; getting a combination that makes it easy for you to display and showcase your products online while at the same time making it easy for your customers to pay for them by credit card is even tougher.
Often, solutions like Stripe and PayPal simply do not allow adult products. Luckily, we can help your sex toy website process credit card payments.
The good news is that we can tell you how you can sell vibrators and other sex toys easily, safely, and at affordable credit card processing rates while using great shopping cart software: VirtueMart.
By using VirtueMart, you’ll have an easy time using our merchant services to process credit card payments for your vibrators and adult toy products.

Why do adult toys on VirtueMart need “high-risk” processing?
The reason it’s challenging to set up payment processing for vibrators, dildos, and other adult toys is that it’s considered “high-risk.” There are multiple factors that banks, payment aggregators, and payment institutions use to reach that conclusion. Predominantly, it’s a result based on a combination of two things: chargebacks and legal requirements (seeing as these are adult/age-restricted products).
As a result, fewer merchant service providers will be able to offer you their services, and many that do will offer them at a rate that’s much higher than “normal.”
This is why it’s so important for you to find a credit card processor that actually specializes in high-risk payments. Ideally, you also want to make sure your e-commerce platform and VirtueMart with Tower Payments credit card processing solve that headache right off the bat.
Age and legal requirements impact your credit card processing choices
We want to cover the basics quickly before we move away from what makes vibrator and adult toy sales high-risk. As a product that’s directed towards adults, with age restrictions and other elements coming into play, your products are under a greater degree of scrutiny than other e-commerce stores.
This does result in more challenges than a non-high-risk business faces. The result is that banks and other payment institutions are generally wary and thereby classify you as high-risk.
It can be frustrating, but it doesn’t have to stop your sex toy business from growing and succeeding online.
Chargebacks are part of your industry environment
Chargebacks are a natural part of the day-to-day when it comes to running your type of business. One of the common causes for chargebacks when you sell adult toys such as vibrators is that there’s an element of taboo that still exists for some consumers when it comes to purchasing adult toys. Even with changing attitudes toward these products, they might double back and dispute a credit card charge for an adult toy if confronted with it – even though they were in full knowledge of what they bought at the time of purchase. When you start selling high quantities of plugs, dildos, dolls, lubes, or vibrators, it’s simply going to be part of the landscape.
However, chargebacks can certainly be managed, and with the right credit card processing setup, you’re halfway there. It’s one of the reasons why we specialize in high-risk processing in the first place. We’ll make sure that you get the support and expertise you need. Not to mention you’ll get efficient, stable processing for your business.
