Yes, you can process payments for high-risk products on Shopify

Shopify is a terrific all-in-one e-commerce platform and hosts some of the best e-commerce features in the business. However, there is a drawback for those who sell regulated products that are a little harder to place in terms of payment gateways.

Why does Shopify Payments not allow many legal business types?

This is because Shopify’s out-of-the-box payment system “Shopify Payments” is “Powered by Stripe” and geared towards low-risk, traditional websites. As a result, it’s not set up to process credit card payments for regulated products. Check out our Stripe’s Prohibited Items guide and our Shopify payments alternatives for high-risk products page to learn more.

The good news is that our dedicated independent agents and processors offer plenty of high-risk alternatives to Shopify Payments. Chief among them is a high-risk Authorize.Net payment gateway.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Without a merchant account underwritten for your exact product line, an Aiuthorize.Net payment gateway alone will not allow you to process payments for most regulated items. Our Authorize.Net for high-risk article explains why and provides more details on Authorize.Net and payment processing for regulated items. Are you ready to set up an alternative Shopify payment gateway for your high-risk products? Contact Tasker Payment Gateways LLC today.

Does Authorize.Net allow you to sell high-risk products on Shopify?

Yes, even if you’re selling bongs, glassware, grinders, CBD, premium cigars, tactical products, or other high-risk products, you can use Authorize.Net with Shopify. But again, you must ensure that the merchant account – or payment processor – that Authorize.Net connects to is also high-risk too, though.

Authorize.Net provides a wide range of features and capabilities that are great for e-commerce businesses. You’re set up for success when you get the correct high-risk payment processing account integrated with Authorize.Net, as it’s a robust, reliable gateway.
