Concrete5: Snipcart and high-risk payments

Are you in an industry that has a hard time finding payment processing?

If so, and you are also and looking for an open source content management system (CMS) the word is, Concrete5 is a powerful solution no matter what type of business you are in. MLM, content creation, SaaS folks, and others know that the simple addition of “Snipcart” will unlock the option to accept payments in high-risk markets through Authorize.Net – when paired with the correct merchant account on the back end.  (Here is a link to the Snipcart add-on). Remember, Authorize.Net needs to be paired with, or sold by, a merchant processor that accepts your business type. Contact us using the form below to get specific recommendations for your website.

It’s important to have an appropriate merchant account for the industry and products you are selling, for example, a vape merchant site wouldn’t necessarily have the same type of merchant account as a licensed online FFL dealer or an alcohol web-store. Fortunately, we can make the process a lot easier for you by recommending the right payment gateways and helping you find the correct type of merchant account to run your business. If you are using Snipcart we would probably connect you through Authorize.Net, but keep in mind that we know dozens of software platforms and several payment gateways that might suit your needs. Also important to note, we would be setting up the Authorize.Net payment gateway with an appropriate merchant account on the back end. Authorize.Net integrates with hundreds of merchant account providers and not all work with all industry types.
