The vape e-commerce landscape 2017

Regulation and sales

If you are thinking of stepping into the e-cig/vaping e-commerce industry you might be more than a little anxious, and understandably so. The industry’s future is currently under question as rules from the FDA draw closer to fully taking effect. The regulation of the process and standards of manufacturing, distributing and marketing these products will make supply lower as businesses decide whether it’s worth the cost. There is an effort to grandfather products swept up in this regulation to only those on the market after Aug. 8th, 2016. This would help many products currently for sale, according to this article, but it is by no means a sure thing.

On-line FFL dealers beware

If you are a licensed FFL dealer on-line and are using your merchant account through a company like Intuit you may be having a hard time as they possibly, according to some, move through a change in their company policy. According to this article from BearingArms.com, it appears some FFL licensed dealers are being disconnected from their “high-risk” merchant accounts. Apparently, Intuit decided the business fell under MOTO (Mail Order/Telephone Order) business regulations, and because they are an FFL dealer, were cut off from service. This is a major reason to consider discussing your merchant account to a high-risk specialist before you have issues. Intuit is a  great company, and if you are with them you probably enjoy a lot of their services, but you should make 100% sure they want your processing business and are fully clear as to what exactly you do for a living.

Interested in getting started in firearm sales?

Some business types are more complicated than others, and many website owners cannot figure out how to get started, or even find a payment system that works because they are considered a prohibited category by the out of the box processing their website builder uses.
