Hey, Frank!

Julie here from Shopify Support.

I'm glad to hear that you're looking into alternative third-party payment gateways for your smoke shop. When you received the email regarding your Shopify Payments account, our team would have suggested an alternative gateway. Did you happen to see any suggestions listed there? 

Typically, our team will recommend using a third-party payment gateway called EMB. You can learn more about this gateway and create an account here. Aside from EMB, is another popular option that will support the sale of smoking accessories. 

Lastly, I recommend checking out our list of available payment gateways in Canada. It might be worth reaching out to a few directly to see if they'll work out for you.

I hope this points you in the right direction!
