Hi @henrywu 

Hope you're having a great day!

Before selling hemp or hemp-derived products (CBD), you should select and apply for a third-party payment gateway.

Shopify Payments is not available for hemp or CBD products at this time. However, Shopify has partnered with third-party payment gateways that support the sale of certain hemp and/or hemp-derived CBD products. The requirements for approval may vary for each gateway. Review the requirements and apply directly to any of these gateways using the following Shopify-specific links:

For CBD companies offering subscriptions, you should check out Pinwheel, which is the only payment processor that supports recurring billing for CBD products! Pinwheel features very low fees and easy peasy integration with your Shopify store via Square Payments.

For DigiPay, you must provide test results from an independent lab that demonstrate your CBD products don’t contain more than the 0.3% THC concentration as allowed by Federal Law. You’ll also need to submit photos of your product and inventory.

Sezzle is a convenient and CBD-supported payment solution. Sezzle'ss innovative approach to sales growth allows customers to split up their total purchase into four interest-free payments lowering the objection to purchasing. 

eMerchant Brokers has also partnered with Shopify to save merchant's time with their CBD payment processor. To get a full understanding of how they can help Shopify sellers, you would need to fill in an application form.

This is an accepted solution.

Hi @henrywu 

I am sincerely sorry for this inconvenience.

Maybe you should consider registering your business in the USA. There is for example Stripe Atlas which allows you to register a business in Delaware in the USA.
Check out the Stripe Atlas application process for more details.

You can also contact Shopify support to see if there are other ways to get your store back: Live chat or email: https://help.shopify.com/en/questions#/contact

Please, would you kindly keep me informed?

Good luck.

First of all, thanks to your helping Michael!

Today, we suddenly got an email from PayKing, where they advised us to connect with their USA aboard contacts, which can help. In Hong Kong, CBD is legal, however, almost all payment gateway reject to service it, due to still contains THC which might bring trouble potentially.

Finally, it needs the business solution rather than just the technical solution, likely Michael's sharing, registered a company based in USA. 

Use only PayPal, even some markets or people dislike their brand PayPal.

Other payment gateway which generate a specific independent link or a QR code to fix the payment, out of shopify system, aka, shopify only perform a cart function.

 

So, the question: Any shopify plug-in payment gateway can support the selling of CBD in shopify store? ---- get fixed, thanks to the suggestion from Michael.------
