High-risk payment gateway options for WooCommerce –

A+ rated, and BBB accredited, Tasker Payment Gateways LLC helps WooCommerce WordPress websites accept credit cards for regulated high-risk items like CBD, smokeshop items (like pipes and bongs), vaporizers, e-liquids, tactical items, and FFL to FFL transfers.

High-risk business types that love WooCommerce

There’s a wide range of high-risk businesses that find WooCommerce to be the best solution to their online credit card payment problems.

Tasker Payment Gateways LLC focuses on helping the following high-risk online business types find a payment gateway and merchant account recommendation that works for them:

Vape, CBD, cigars, bongs, and e-juice processing for WooCommerce

If you sell various smoking accessories that stretch into different high-risk categories, where some products are high-risk and others aren’t, then WooCommerce is a great solution.

This is because you can connect WooCommerce with NMI, which allows you to access and manage multiple merchant accounts for your different types of product sales. NMI also allows a huge host of high-risk merchant account integrations – this makes recommending processing easy for us, and affordable for you.

Additionally, our trusted partners are often able to place you with an all in one credit card processor that allows a full line of common smoke shop items like CBD, vape, disposable ENDS, cigars, bongs, and glassware.

Tactical and FFL to FFL online sales with WooCommerce

Tactical, prepper, survival, and FFL to FFL site owners find WooCommerce to be a particularly great solution. Not only does WooCommerce offer FFL-friendly payment gateway compatibility – you even have a choice between three of the best gateway alternatives for FFLs: ePN, NMI, and Authorize.Net.

In short, WooCommerce makes it much easier to take credit cards as an online FFL or tactical merchant. Our trusted tactical e-commerce partners can assist you with every step of the process.

Authorize.Net and NMI are both terrific WooCommerce solutions

WooCommerce is a solid option for many high-risk WordPress website owners. Woo integrates with alternatives to Stripe, Square, and PayPal by using NMI or Authorize.Net. This flexibility allows regulated businesses to process credit card payments. That is, as long as the back-end processing is set up for your exact product line – you can contact us anytime for help.

Both Authorize.Net and NMI are fantastic high-risk solutions for WooCommerce. They allow seamless integrations, including native reporting, native refunds, and plenty of other useful features.

The native refund aspect is important. The ability to refund orders directly from within the WooCommerce plugin avoids extra steps and removes room for delayed refunds and angry customers.

Let’s look at both of these payment gateways, and how they work with WooCommerce, in a little more detail.

High-risk payments: WooCommerce & Authorize.Net

As you might know, Authorize.Net (AuthNet, for short) is one of our favorite high-risk friendly payment gateways – when set up correctly. They’re a great fit for a number of high-risk business types and offer fantastic features.

We can easily integrate Authorize.Net with WooCommerce using the CodeCanyon plugin. It’s not a free plugin, but at only $30 it opens up your e-commerce site to so many valuable features and capabilities that it’s well worth the money!

AuthNet is absolutely excellent out of the box when you consider all the features it has to offer. However, a little tinkering and adjusting can go a long way to making it positively amazing. You can safely store customer information for repeat buyers, and even lock down its included fraud detection to help protect yourself from crooks.

We will help you pair it with the right credit card processor (one that specializes in your industry) and offer you processing recommendations that will give you very low credit card processing rates. That’s on top of processing online payments securely for the long haul!

Find out if the Authorize.Net/WooCommerce combination is right for you

Note: Connecting Authorize.Net to the wrong back end processor can result in held funds and shut down merchant accounts. Contact Tasker Payment Gateways LLC anytime for free friendly advice or to get started processing credit card payments on your website. We are happy to lend a hand, regardless of your timeline.

Let’s dig into if Authorize.Net can work for you. Below are some of the regulated business types that can use Authorize.Net as long as the back end processing if set up correctly with high-risk processing on the back end.

If you’re curious whether Authorize.Net is right for you, read our dedicated high-risk payments with Authorize.Net page for more information.

High-risk friendly payments on WooCommerce with NMI

Network Merchant Inc (NMI) is another of our regularly recommended payment gateways for high-risk businesses. NMI is one of the most used payment gateways in the high-risk industry. It offers a unique, patented solution you won’t get elsewhere: ATRI multi-merchant account management.

Much like Authorize.Net, we can very easily integrate NMI with WooCommerce using a stable, tested,  CodeCanyon plugin. The plugin costs $50, and you’ll be able to manage multiple merchant accounts and accept payments quickly and securely. We do not sell plug-ins, nor receive commissions on them, we simply have received enough positive feedback on Code Canyon that we are happy to suggest them as a top option.

What is ATRI?

ATRI gives site owners the ability to manage multiple merchant accounts from a single payment gateway. This is one of the biggest draws of NMI.

Multi merchant account balancing allows high-risk e-commerce site owners who sell products that vary greatly in risk and processing costs to effectively manage their processing and fees.

NMI offers so many great features that there are too many to cover here. You can see our NMI feature overview resource here for more in-depth information and video explanations.

Is the NMI/WooCommerce combo right for your site?

Let us help you decide if you should process payments using NMI, a proper high-risk merchant account, and WooCommerce. If NMI is your best fit, our trusted independent agents will help you accept credit cards without unnecessary fees or easily prevented merchant account headaches like held funds and closed accounts.

Visit our NMI info page to learn more about NMI and how it works for high-risk businesses.

Please, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have questions about NMI. Or if you’d like some help setting up your business with the NMI payment gateway.

What makes WooCommerce uniquely high-risk friendly?

One element of WooCommerce that sets it apart from a huge number of e-commerce solutions is that they’re open to just about any legal business. This makes them uniquely high-risk friendly and among the clear favorites for high-risk site owners.

High-risk friendly, open-source software

The WooCommerce software is open source and released under a GPL license. Essentially, this means you can usually sell your products without encountering any violation of terms issues. That said, while the software doesn’t add many restrictions, you still need to set your site up correctly.

For example, you still need a high-risk merchant account, and a high-risk friendly payment gateway in order to accept credit cards. Not to mention that you’ll need to comply with shipping rules and other commerce regulations. Don’t worry though, we can help you with the payment gateway set-up and provide vetted merchant account recommendations. All you need to do is contact us to get started.

E-commerce made possible through WordPress

WordPress is the most widely used Content Management System (CMS) out there. It powers about 30% of all websites, which is staggering!

WordPress is also an open-source solution, which means it isn’t restricted in a similar fashion to other site builders. When you combine this with WooCommerce you will have a uniquely high-risk friendly e-commerce combination your online business can take full advantage of.

If you have questions about setting up your online store with WordPress and WooCommerce, please contact us here. We’re always happy to offer some free, friendly advice.
