Common high-risk e-commerce questions:

My online business is considered high-risk and I am having trouble getting a payment gateway and credit card processing; can you help me?

Since 2003 we have worked to help merchants like you find high-risk payment solutions. We focus on payment gateways, online software, merchant account recommendations, affiliate payout systems and chargeback mitigation. We know the major players in the domestic and international e-commerce and credit card processing industry and can make solid recommendations even if you have been told your goods or services fall into a “prohibited category.” Just fill out the “contact us” page with a description of your product, and the challenges you have had in the past. As long as your business is legal and ethical, a trusted, independent agent will get right back to you with a high-risk friendly payment and gateway processor/merchant account suggestion that works for your industry type.

We have credit card processing relationships that work with online retailers who are in the pawn shop industry or are federally licensed online and retail shooting sports dealers who sell firearms and ammunition online (e-commerce FFL’s). We have terrific tested partners that love working with websites that sell electronic cigarettes, mods,  and vaporizers including no reserve merchant account recommendations for websites who sell e-liquids with nicotine. We also have solid recommendations for online cigar and tobacco sales, weight loss, products, online beer, wine, liquor, or other alcohol sales, recurring billing clubs, travel packages, fantasy sports leagues, glass pipes, grinders,  biz-ops / business opportunity products, nutraceuticals such as male vitality and garcinia cambogia, dietary supplements, DR / direct response products, pre-paid phone cards, online dating, and MLM /multi-level marketing companies.

We try to understand your business fully and often take a lot of one on one time to dig in and help.

What exactly is a payment gateway?

Authorize.net, ePN, or NMI are examples of popular payment gateways. A payment gateway, in it’s simplest terms, is a software as a service (SaaS) that allows you to transmit and store sensitive credit card information in a secure environment. The payment gateway integrates with an online shopping cart or software system and sends the transaction to your merchant account or processor. In the same way that the little black terminal at your favorite sandwich shop transmits your cardholder data when the clerk swipes (or dips in the case of EMV) your credit card through it, a payment gateway also sends your customer’s data, albeit with many more features and different security measures in place. The merchant account is your business relationship that underwrites your account and deposits the funds into your business bank account.

Accepting payments online can get confusing, so we are happy to go over it with you in detail. Please feel free to use the contact us form, or call us with any questions. Also, if you are a web developer and have a client in need of assistance, please take advantage of our Just For Web Developers program where we offer free advice to web developers on e-commerce carts and software, payment gateways, chargeback mitigation, SSL certificates, and high-risk merchant account suggestions.

Do I need both a merchant account and a gateway?

Generally, to process cards online, you need payment gateway software such as Authorize.Net, ePN, or NMI and a merchant account which is the relationship that actually processes the cards and deposits the funds into your bank account. You can often go through the same original point of contact for your credit card processing and your gateway whether it be by using our recommended partners, or another provider. Getting your merchant account through one vendor, and your gateway through a source that has no relationship with your gateway or reseller can create “he said she said” issues, additionally, it can add to your fees. It’s your choice, though, and we are happy to discuss your options.

 Why Tasker Payment Gateways?

When it comes to selecting the right payment gateway and reseller, you want to work with someone who will take the time and explain things – someone who is trying actually to help you, rather than just make a sale. We take a consultive approach with both new clients and potential customers. We are happy to help even if you are just checking things out, don’t know where to start, or are with someone else and not quite ready to switch. We often earn our customers business months or years after we first speak. Contact us anytime; we are always happy to help whether it be a standard gateway or a unique solution like NMI’s ATRI feature and its ability to manage multiple merchant accounts through one log-in.

Do I need a shopping cart to sell online?

Depending on what kind of transactions you are looking at processing through your website, a shopping cart may or may not be necessary. For people selling one item, taking donations, or selling tickets, using a “buy now” button will do what you need and save you the time, money, and effort that would normally go into configuring and maintaining a shopping cart solution. Our NMI Network Merchants gateway offering has a QuickClick feature that allows you to add multiple items to a cart and even manage basic recurring billing without any 3rd party cart. On the other hand, for a more sophisticated online retail experience where you will have several items with varying price points, a shopping cart is probably a good choice.

Some common e-commerce shopping cart, payment page, and CRM software solutions we regularly work with are ASecureCart, Drupal, BigCommerce, Mijireh, WHMCS, OSCommerce, Shopify, JigoShop plugin for WordPress, Wild Apricot, Cube Cart, Magento, Open Cart, Salesforce via Chargent, Virtue Mart, Wazala, Weebly, Wix, WooCommerce, WP E-Commerce, & Zen Cart.

I am overwhelmed, where do I start?

We can help you make the right decision for your business, translate the e-commerce gobbledygook, and assist you with simple “next steps.” Feel free to be descriptive on our contact page; it will not cut you off at 140 characters!
