Leverage our expertise to set up high-risk payment gateways and merchant accounts
Without the right experience and research, finding an excellent payment gateway and merchant account combo still isn’t exactly a cakewalk. There’s a host of factors that come into play when operating within any high-risk industry. However, with the help of our experience and network of industry contacts, we’ll be able to assess your needs and set you up with what you need to get started accepting credit cards.
When you first get in touch with us, we’ll ask some standard questions about your business. This will let us identify your best payment options quickly.
When in doubt, ask an expert
One thing we do recommend, especially if you are new to the business, is that you seek a qualified attorney that knows your industry and is familiar with all the state and local laws that impact you. Talking to an attorney early in the process is always a good way to ensure that you don’t run into any unexpected hassle down the line.
The words and images on your glassware site matter
We know from experience that even small tweaks to your website’s content, or your social media, can make a difference in whether you cross a line with various terms and conditions that payment gateways and merchant account providers enforce. It can be confusing- for example, want to say boro or borosilicate glass? That’s fine. Bangers? No sweat. But many other common terms can cause you real issues. Let us review your site and get you a payment gateway quote at the same time- it can really save you a lot of time and hassle.
Beware the links and redirects
The processors will want to see that your products align will all the rules and regulations. They will be checking to see if you have links from your site to other pages or social media accounts to ensure those accounts do not have illicit references that could be construed as applying to your products. The underwriters will also be able to see where you applied in the past and will want to make sure that you are not simply redirecting traffic from an old, previously declined URL to your new compliant site. This can be complex, so please reach out to us for one on one help.
Our new account specialists are all highly experienced in the high-risk market and can meet the payment needs of your pipe and glassware e-commerce business. You will be assigned a dedicated agent who will walk you through, step by step, everything you need to do to accept credit card payments on your smoking accessory website. Additionally, our goal is that you will always have a dedicated point of contact you can call or email, for as long as you process credit cards. We want to be there for the long haul.
Why you should carefully choose which payment services you use for your pipe and glassware site
Are you just starting out and looking for your first payment gateway, or are you reassessing your current one? Either way, there are certain things you’ll need to keep in mind – one of which is that not all payment services are created equal. There are certainly differences between various merchant accounts, between payment gateways, and among different e-commerce platforms.
Even after you’ve done your research, and you know that you’ve found one that is indeed suited for high-risk e-commerce, there are still potential pitfalls. We’ll be able to help guide you through this, making obtaining the payment services you need a pain-free and even pleasant experience overall.
How to find the best payment gateway for pipes and glassware
There are some potential dangers and problems high-risk merchants can face when taking cards for the first time. Some are worse than others, but if you ’re looking for a high-risk payment gateway, you probably are savvy enough to realize how important the correct payment choices are for your site. When choosing your payment gateway, information is critical. This is why knowing as much as possible about the different service providers is so important.
At Tasker Payment Gateways, we specialize in identifying what solutions are best for you as a pipe and glassware merchant. We will work to steer you clear of serious problems, like held funds or shut-down payment gateway accounts.
We use our extensive, vetted network of contacts in the high-risk market to ensure that we find you the best option possible. We’ll keep your industry, location, and the type of platform you’re looking for in mind. That said, if you have a platform that doesn’t work for you, we will recommend alternatives for you to choose from.
Don’t hesitate to take advantage of our expertise! You can always contact us using our contact forms for some free advice and suggestions. We are paid by the providers, not you, so don’t be afraid to reach out for help.
Payment gateway, merchant account, and platform combinations matter
While this might seem like a given, it is vital that you’re well informed when you make a decision on any of the following for your business:
- The best payment gateway to use for a glassware site
- Which high-risk merchant account to apply for
- What shopping cart or site builder works best for your business
You also need to consider how these three work together, and we can help with that. We always keep our ear to the ground for news in this sector, and we know all the ins-and-outs of the industry. We’ll highlight what works best for you and what your options are – at no direct cost to you. We are paid by providers when we refer them qualified business and enjoy helping new online businesses regardless of whether or not we make money right away.
We have learned, over the many years we have been doing this, that “it all comes around.” When we help online business by sharing information that helps them thrive- we thrive. It’s as simple as that.
We want to help you make the best payment choices for your pipe and glass site. After all, some payment gateways are exceptionally good at facilitating certain high-risk business types, while not being equally as impressive for others. For example, if you also sell more traditional products, more often than not you’ll need different providers for your glassware products. The reason being that these products need different treatment due to differences in risk levels/types.
We’ll make sure that you’re well set up with the correct providers that you need for your product lines. In some cases, it’s worth having more than one merchant account for different pipe and glassware products to take extra precaution in mitigating the overall risks to your shop. NMI, with an integrated BigCommerce shopping cart, would potentially be a great option in this case. Don’t worry though – when you know the high-risk payment business as well as we do – this assessment is easy to make. It all depends on your inventory type, location, and sales volumes; we’ll let you know if multiple accounts are something we recommend for your business.
Shopping carts for your pipe and glassware site
As we mentioned earlier, these days it’s much easier than it once was to find and set up payment gateways for online pipe and glassware stores. More payment gateways allow credit card processing for pipe, glassware, and similar accessories. At the same time, the number of big-name e-commerce shopping carts that accept pipe and glassware products has increased dramatically. Among them you’ll find e-commerce giants like Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, Wix, and osCommerce, to mention a few.
