Merchant Account for SMOKE SHOPS / GLASS PIPE Retail Locations

Smoke shops are becoming more and more popular and as a new or established owner of a smoke shop, it can be difficult to establish a merchant account.  Many of these shops sell products such as hookah, tobacco, 420 accessories, pot pipes, cannabis pipes, mmj products, tobacco grinders, rolling papers, CBD products, kratom products, cbd delta eight edibles and flower, and other smoking accessories and drug paraphernalia. With the selling of these products business owners must follow certain government guidelines and are considered high-risk. 

High risk merchant accounts

Due to being high risk you may have experienced being turned down, however we have high risk specialists who are able to assist you with getting approved for a merchant account for your credit card processing and business needs.

Merchant accounts for glass pipe retail locations

Along with smoke shops, glass pipe retailers, cbd delta-8 sellers, kratom head shop retailers are also viewed as high risk and may have difficulty being approved for a merchant account. Many banks are reluctant to work with these businesses due to being high risk because of the likelihood of chargebacks, age restrictions, and the laws and government guidelines involved. As a result, they are often declined or shutoff which makes it hard for business owners for procuring payment processing.

Consider us for all your credit card transactions

Several leading credit card processors do not look at merchant accounts for smoke shops favorably because of the legality involved and also the risk of chargebacks.  If they are approved, the only options they are left with are high interest rates and additional fees.
