Hi I am opening a new online store for a vape and CBD and looking for payment gateway?

Any recommendations. I am based in the UK. Heard PayPal dont provide this and require 3rd party payment gateway?

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks

Hi @ShianVW,

You would need to find a gateway that supports transactions for "high risk" transactions, which is typically what sales of CBD and CBD-related products would be classified as. There are some of these gateways that connect with Shopify that you could consider. I'd recommend checking out the following gateways:

I cannot guarantee that these gateways support CBD sales in the UK, but as gateways that allow for payments of more "high risk" products to be processed, I would suggest looking into using them first of all.

Kind regards,

Are someone here who smokes e-cigarettes with CBD? Please tell me how you feel. Many people praise this product. Is this because of how CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream? How do I choose liquids and cigarettes for VAPE? Which tastes are more attractive? In General, I think that choosing an e-cigarette is both simple and difficult. Why is this so? The answer is very simple-literally every month, new models with new features appear on the hover market. In this regard, the rating of Boxing mods may change, but, of course, there are constant favorites that hold leading positions for a long time. From this website, I know a lot about it, but I want some reviews.

Hi Shian,

I appreciate it has been a few months since your post, but did you manage to secure a payments processor for your CBD/Vape shop?

I work for Paytriot Payments, a UK based Payments company, and we specialise in this area, so would be happy to speak to you about this should you want more information.

My contacts are: Email - amit@paytriot.co.uk / Skype - amitpaytriot@outlook.com

All the best.

We have an online Vape store here in Shopify and getting a decent payment gateway is a real nightmare. I got told to open an authorize.com account which I did but as soon as I go into my settings it's not listed and doesn't come up when you enter it in...but it's on the list of accepted POS gateways!! The worst part of all is, we literally don't even have any nicotine products - at all whatsoever! It's really annoying that despite this we get lumped into what feels like the "bad guys" section where you cannot advertise you cannot even link your google entirely or socials and you are constantly denied access to any advertising period! Now we can't even have a way to get payments? Unreal...I've read heaps of different things online from just about anywhere I could try to source actual current and more importantly ACCURATE info on the subject as guidance but I'm no better off a week later nearly. Good luck to you mate!

Yes,

There are some methods use for this purpose. I have a store too on these products and that working great for me. I use  Authorize.Net , Segapay and check payment also. Also use Payoneer just gives email and option for payment form. These type are good to go with. There is also more companies like paytroit but check their reviews on trustpilot. I have store on e juice and vapping related and when i was new i got suspended from paypal and stripe too due to this thing.

Yeah, So we got hit with the Paypal thing too. Which was a massive hit for us. Authorize.net tell me we need a merchant account which we don't have as we were previously on big commerce and they hosted our payments for us. We only moved due to losing the credit card payment processing which was a fail as we are literally in the exact same position now however we lost a lot of business moving sites as everyone had to reactivate accounts and now the gateway issue again!

So I emailed Patriot (thanks for the message- I don't have skype but have emailed you) and I'm going to now go look at the other options mentioned in the messages above. Fingers crossed!
