What to Know

In 2015, the global tobacco market surpassed an impressive $6 billion, underlining its sustained growth. The demand for smoking accessories, such as bongs and pipes, within this thriving market makes it imperative for businesses to embrace debit and credit card payments. Accepting card transactions is not only convenient for customers but also crucial for capturing sales from those without immediate access to cash.

To navigate the dynamic landscape of eCommerce effectively, securing a dedicated smoking accessories merchant account is vital. This ensures a seamless and secure payment process tailored to the unique needs of the industry. However, relying on standard processors for credit card processing may pose challenges due to the perceived high-risk nature of selling smoking accessories. Hence, businesses in this niche must prioritize specialized merchant services to mitigate potential issues and foster a robust financial foundation. Traditional banks and payment processors may exhibit hesitancy in extending services to these businesses, driven by concerns related to regulatory implications associated with transactions involving cannabis-related products. Moreover, credit card processors often impose restrictions on the categories of products they are willing to process payments for.

The insufficient security measures implemented by many processors pose risks for both business owners and customers. To address these challenges, it is crucial to identify a reliable and compliant CBD hemp and ancillary cannabis payment processing system.
