Most Payment Processors are not prepared to work with smoke and vape shop merchant accounts.

We Are!

Taking the Risk out of High Risk Payment Processing webMost traditional payment processing solutions can’t offer a retail merchant account to businesses that sell certain products such as tobacco, vape pens, bongs, pipes and other paraphernalia. Especially if they are operating online.

Ecommerce Smoke shops face even more challenges simply due to the nature of online sales. Not only are they a target for fraudulent payment activity, but they also experience higher levels of chargebacks than other business models. The credit card associations have additional regulations in place for high risk merchant category codes such as Ecommerce tobacco merchants.
