Issues getting a merchant account?

Your CBD merchant account solution

Finding a CBD merchant account can be difficult. This is due largely to the amount of regulation from national and local governments and card brands This means you need to partner with a processing company that has a history of making compliance their top concern. Many companies won't board CBD merchants because of all of the compliance measures that it requires. We believe this is a big opportunity for us.

CBD Merchant Account Stability

Getting approved for a CBD merchant account with any provider is simply not enough, you need to ensure you are set up with a stable long-term merchant account. Many payment processing companies will give you instant approval without formally underwriting your business. This is great until you start processing and they realize what you are selling. At this point, they will shut down your account at best, and at worst they will hold your funds for up to 6 months! Many companies like Square, Stripe, and Paypal fit this model. They are not fit to process for high risk industries, which will lead to funds being frozen and withheld. We actually underwrite our account before approval and work with our network of 15 banks to make sure that not only do you get the best rate, but you go through an underwriting process that will make sure your account is always able to consistently process payments! With us, your CBD payment processing will be one less thing you have to worry about.

CBD is High Risk

CBD is one of the industries that gets immediately classified as "high risk" in the payment processing sphere. This is due to a variety of factors. CBD was not federally legal until 2018. CBD has been extremely regulated due to how close in nature it is to THC. Similar to firearms, these large regulations often times mean that merchant accounts are more likely to be terminated. Also, CBD is primarily sold online. Ecommerce and high-volume sales only add to the risk, and this is why you need a high risk payment processor for your merchant account.
