Why do headshop site owners need high-risk processing?

If you have hookahs, bongs, or other smoking paraphernalia in your online store, as far as merchant account providers are concerned, you’re running a “high-risk” site. However, being high-risk doesn’t need to stop you in your tracks when it comes to getting an affordable payment gateway.

What “high-risk” does mean is that you should generally avoid more standard merchant service providers and payment aggregators. You want to make sure to get a merchant account and a payment gateway from a high-risk processing specialist.

WooCommerce works for headshop sites and payment gateways

A similar “high-risk” designation generally applies to site builders and shopping carts too, although it is often called “prohibited activities” or an “allowed use.”

While there are many great alternatives available, If you choose not to use WordPress, you should take time to read the site builder’s “Terms and Conditions” thoroughly or email the site builder’s risk management or compliance folks to ensure you don’t end up with a down site. The same applies to website hosting.

This is why we love WordPress and WooCommerce. Due to their open-source and almost libertarian structure, WordPress and WooCommerce have very forgiving terms and conditions. We have found that the vast majority of our clients that use WooCommerce for their online headshop love it- and we love it too because it makes setting up a payment gateway and credit card processing a breeze.

Not all processors are familiar with – or allow online headshops

Let us help you accept credit cards. If you sell pipes, grinders, bongs, and dab units you’ll quickly find out that not all processors are created equal. Often, you’ll find that headshops, or even certain products on your site, are listed under most payment services company’s  “prohibited business types” list. That is why we focus on finding you a complete, stable, affordable, headshop credit card processing solution.

We take care of the details and allow you to focus on selling your smoking products online. Rather than figuring out how credit card processing works from scratch – you can lean on our experience and leave it to us!

You don’t need to settle for expensive processing as a headshop site owner

When you’re selling high-risk products like pipe and glassware accessories, it can be difficult to find processing at a cost that works for your bottom line. Even when you’ve found a platform and e-commerce software that supports high-risk sales, like WooCommerce, it can still be a challenge.

Many businesses that get approved for a high-risk merchant account settle for whatever processing is available – even if the rates are higher than necessary. The reason many use unstable or expensive processing is simply because they don’t know that there are better alternatives out there.

We don’t think that’s right – your ability process payments shouldn’t be held against you regardless of your business type. We believe that any legal business deserves the same chance at success. That’s why we offer clear, up-front terms, with fair and honest pricing, for our high-risk credit card processing clients.
