We currently set up e-cig merchants (vaping supplies, e-juice, mods, pens, batteries, and supplies) with vape friendly Authorize.Net, NMI or Eprocessing Network payment gateways, refer them to no-reserve vetted merchant account processors that appreciate their business, and assist those merchants, one on one, with the integration of these gateways into their choice of shopping cart. Contact us anytime to learn more.

Fast streamlined set-up and registration assistance for electronic cigarette / vape merchants looking for a payment gateway solution.

We can assist you in obtaining a merchant account for your business and refer you to a processor that will offer quick, simple registration. As of January 2017. all vape merchants are required to register with a card association as a “tobacco” merchant even if they do not sell tobacco in any way. We can help guide you through this process and simplify it by aligning you with providers that have removed some unnecessary requirements and work with you at each step as a partner.

Please note, glass pipe, grinder, MMJ packaging and paraphernalia merchants have slightly different needs and different solutions, if you are in this market please click here to learn more.

No reserve accounts

We can generally assist vape supply and e-liquid merchants with obtaining a “no reserve” processing gateway combo so that your cash flow is not negatively impacted. We can even help with obtaining solid payment gateway services and processing at no reserve if you are a start up.

Payment gateway integration

Along with our tested and vetted, stable vape friendly merchant account recommendations, our suite of gateway options allows the absolute vast majority of vape merchants to integrate with the software or cart they choose, regardless of that cart’s internal or “preferred” processing or gateway restrictions. We help manage the entire process for our merchants from start to finish and make sure they are up and running, integrated, and selling with solutions that work for them.  Our variety of solutions make it easier than ever for vape and e-liquid merchants to integrate with hundreds of carts and software packages. Our preferred gateway providers and merchant account recommendations not only allow online vape merchants and do not consider them a prohibited category, they actually appreciate the business!

The online payment gateways we offer to e-cigarette merchants not only allow them to accept credit cards online, they do so in a user-friendly manner.
We have options to integrate with nearly every major shopping cart or development system out there, ASecureCart, Shopify, osCommerce, BigCommerce, , cubecart, Joomla, WordPress, Zen cart, Magento, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, and hundreds more. You name it, we can probably help!

By providing added service and one on one dedicated  “concierge set up support” for the vape market we strive to service an industry that often feels shunned or under-served. Please call or email us anytime, we are always happy to help answer questions. We enjoy assisting start-ups, as well as established merchants. If you are new to selling electronic cigarettes online you should read our “State laws for Internet E-Cigarette sales” and seek legal advice as well.

Remember. our preferred merchant processors understand how high rates and high reserves effect business, and they happily work with online start-ups as well. Our partners can even personally walk new merchants through every step of the payment gateway set-up process. Electronic cigarette retailers and e-commerce merchants will receive respectful, personalized, one on one concierge level support whether they are setting up a  template based Shopify store today, or have been in the business for years using a custom cart.  We will even assist live on the phone if needed when merchants actually set up their payment gateway and plug the required credentials into their shopping cart.
