High-risk payment gateways for OpenCart

Accept credit cards for your high-risk OpenCart business 

Credit card processing is essential to any e-commerce site. For vape and e-liquid merchants, FFL dealers, online premium cigar sites, supplement marketers, ammunition e-commerce sites and other high-risk industries it is an even more important decision to make. OpenCart connects to NMI, ePN, and high-risk Authorize.Net, 3 of our favorite payment gateways that all allow us to make specific merchant account recommendations and ensure that your high-risk payment gateway is paired up with a high-risk merchant account on the back end. This is essential; otherwise, you may be declined or shut off which is common when new high-risk merchants apply for processing directly on payment gateway website.
