Hi CBDRelief Co,

 

To change, modify or add code to the checkout page of your Shopify website, here's what you need to do:

 

  1. Log into your website management dashboard and scroll down to the middle of the page and click the "Online Store" menu option.
  2. When it opens up, click on "Themes".
  3. Now, you will see the theme that you've chosen for your website.
  4. Scroll over to the left side of your screen. Notice the large button that says, 'Actions'.

Right there underneath the Actions tab is where you will see the 'EDIT CODE' option.

 

Be very careful when trying to edit or modifying actual code to your Shopify store! If you don't have a basic familiarity with writing HTML code and JavaScript don't mess with it. If you create a mess you'll end up hiring an expert developer/coder like myself to fix it. The average rate per hour charged by Shopify Developers can vary from $75.00 USD up to $200.00 USD per hour. And we keep very busy thanks to thousands who mess up their website code.

 

Fortunately, Shopify provides some excellent resources and tools. Here's a Shopify provided link that teaches you how to properly edit, add-to, or change code within your theme.

Hi City Hemp,

 

Google Pay works fabulously for those who sell hemp-flower. I have a ton of clients that are using Google Pay to sell hemp-flower and not one single account has been shut down nor experienced a problem. The method we use to activate Google Pay as a checkout option is fully compliant with Shopify's Payment Policy.

 

It's important to keep in mind that anytime you're selling a questionable "high risk" such as CBD flower you cannot engage Shopify as a payment option.

News update from the Food & Drug Administration:
Publication Date: 16 October 2019
 
 
Answers to two important questions:
 
9. Can THC or CBD products be sold as dietary supplements?
A. No. Based on available evidence, FDA has concluded that THC and CBD products are excluded from the dietary supplement definition under section 201(ff)(3)(B) of the FD&C Act [21 U.S.C. § 321(ff)(3)(B)].
 
10. Is it legal, in interstate commerce, to sell a food (including any animal food or feed) to which THC or CBD has been added?
A. No. Under section 301(ll) of the FD&C Act [21 U.S.C. § 331(ll)].
 
In light of this recent announcement from the FDA we can certainly expect to see CBD-friendly banks introduce new underwriting requirements for merchants. Rules of the game are constantly changing.  Ignorance of the law is not an excuse to break it.
 
It's your responsibility to know which products in your online store are legal vs illegal. What should you do?
  • Change or remove any verbiage on your website that refers to CBD as a "dietary supplement". It's a no-no.
  • Remove any CBD-infused food/meals from your website. It's a no-no.

Got questions? Send me an email or give me call.

EMP Emerchantbroker has recently opened it's doors for CBD-Sales.

Well, as we need this solution fast, we applied for an account. There is a lot of documentation to send, from business licence to company ownership certification and a lot of more.

For CBD they have even more regulations as:

  • Clear posting of statement that all CBD products contain less than 0.2% THC on all product pages
  • Clear posting of a link to a page displaying the lab results for CBD products showing the product contains less than 0.2% THC
  • Terms and Conditions - The terms must state that the governing law is the same jurisdiction/country as the jurisdiction/country of the company
  • Shipping Policy - Shipping policy should include methods available i.e Fed-Ex, UPS, Royal Mail, etc. and the estimated time for each method
  • Privacy Policy
  • Credit Card Logos - Card logos Visa/MasterCard etc. must be displayed in color
  • Secure checkout page - we prefer the entire website be SSL secured, however, we will provide a secure check out process on the hosted payment page

We fullfill all the requirements above and as posted they need even more docs.

Finally they denied to accept us, because we are to small business partners. We are small retailers, starting a business to grow. Its true, that it takes some time to develop a business.

 

Long story short - if You are a big coorp you should apply. If you are a small business owner or a startup, it doesnot make sense to apply.

Hope the info is helpfull for you
