Hi @iJ3ff 

For your information, Tobacco and CBD products are considered high-risk products on Shopify. This article Payment Gateways for High Risk Businesses on Shopify give the users a vast choice of payment gateways for their business, especially in high-risk industries. We hope that this article will become helpful for you. If you have any questions related to this topic, feel free to leave a comment below.

Dear Jasonavada,

I just read your answer from August, and if you dont mind I would like to ask you two questions:
My take is that one can sell i.e. cigars using the shopify plattform, if one uses an external payment provider (which itself requires a merchant account). Is that correct?

Do you know the critical requirements of those gateway providers? (for instance I know they need a merchant account)

Thank you!

Best,

Christian
