Nutraceutical and dietary supplement payment gateways

Sell dietary products online without getting your payment processing shut down.

Some payment gateway companies and merchant account providers might raise an eyebrow when a potential client says their product is a nutraceutical or dietary supplement. Nonetheless, it’s an industry that, over the last 30 years, has grown in stride with, if not in many ways in opposition to, the booming pharmaceutical industry.

A+ rated and BBB-accredited Tasker Payment Gateways LLC can help your nutritional supplement website accept credit card payments online. Check out our About Us page to learn more.

Products like pre-workout supplements and weight loss pills have become large profit centers, and with the growth of e-commerce, many have taken to the Internet to sell these products, but not always in the most straightforward way. This is why, although nutraceuticals and dietary supplements have become a hot industry, they are a closely watched one. To properly set up, a dietary supplement business online, merchants make sure to go through a few important steps (we can help).

Increase your nutra merchant account stability with the right merchant account advice

Before you get started, you should know that this business automatically falls into the high-risk” category, which simply means there is a high risk of chargebacks or other hassles for your providers. Subsequently, many processors simply do not want your business as much as you want them.

For this reason, you must connect a merchant account and payment processing gateway to your website through providers that know, understand, and want your business.

Fortunately, we can help you with both of these issues by recommending one of the many vetted merchant account contacts we have acquired over the years, helping you connect it to a payment gateway like Authorize.Net or  NMI, and helping integrate that with your shopping cart or CRM. We will take the time to help you find the right e-commerce software when needed, and we can even recommend a processor that is the best fit for your specific product type and marketing model. Don’t be afraid to contact us. We are here to help every step of the way.

Tips for accepting credit cards for dietary supplements & nutraceuticals

There are various ways to market products these days, but it can be especially difficult in an industry that doesn’t have a lot of trust. It’s true that many of the products that fall under the category are tried and true, but getting those potential customers to choose you over the hundreds of others in your space is not your first obstacle. Before you sell nutra products online, you need to be approved for credit card processing.

Credit card processors “share risk” with their clients and therefore want to ensure that your claims are not out of line, that you are financially stable, and that you ship products on time.

Run an honest business, and be an honest businessperson with an honest product. Make sure to give a full and accurate description of your products, and don’t include gimmicky claims.

You should have a customer service team that is responsive and well trained and make sure your contact information is clearly listed on your website. Educate your customers to ensure they understand not only what they are buying but also why you’re the better business to buy from.

Another important point is not to push too much, or oversell, on the front page of your site. Allow your customers to explore and learn before you push them into buying and potentially scare them off. This is an interesting industry and is as dependent on your ability to get the customer to trust you as it is on the product. If your clients get nervous after they order, you will suffer from chargebacks, and that is a sure way to have merchant account challenges.
