Expertise in smoking accessory payment gateways and shopping cart compatibility
Established in 2002, Tasker Payment Gateways LLC specializes in finding the best payment gateways for a wide variety of online high-risk business types. If you’re planning on selling pipes and glassware and need help accepting credit cards, you’ve come to the right place!
Selling pipe and glassware products online
If you’ve been selling pipe and glassware products for a while, you might already know how difficult it was to process credit cards only a few years ago. Luckily, it’s now considerably easier to find great payment gateways, merchant accounts, and e-commerce platforms for pipe and glassware businesses.
More solutions are now available for pipe and glass websites
Most major e-commerce plug-ins, site builders, and shopping carts can be easily integrated with pipe friendly processing if it is done carefully and correctly. This opens up a world of possibilities for pipe and glassware e-commerce.
Reliable e-commerce platforms like Wix, Squarespace, WordPress, BigCommerce, and Shopify, to name a few, give you a range of functionalities and allow you to take your online sales of pipes and glassware to the next level.
Top payment gateways for smoking accessories
We work hard to find the very best pipe and glass payment gateways we possibly can in order to help site owners accept payments safely and successfully.
Lately, we are seeing more big-name e-commerce platforms becoming available to online smoke shops. We’re also seeing some top quality payment gateways and merchant accounts accepting pipe, glass, and smoking accessory sites.
In fact, two of our longtime favorite high-risk friendly payment gateways work very well for pipe and glass e-commerce.
Before we dive right into these two top smoking and pipe and glass payment gateways, we need to clarify something. The ideal payment gateway depends entirely on a number of factors that can be unique depending on your specific business.
Deciding what payment processing solution is best for you might depend on your processing history, your region, the shopping cart you use, or the e-commerce platform you use for your pipe and glassware site.
All of these aspects come into play when choosing any merchant services – be it high-risk merchant accounts, credit card processing providers, etc.
If you need help, you can read more about how to decide on the best payment gateway for your site here. Alternatively, you can always contact us here; we’re more than happy to help you move forward.
Does Authorize.Net allow pipe and glass sites?
Yes, you can use Authorize.Net for high-risk products like pipe and glass e-commerce. While the Authorize.Net gateway is a great solution for online smoke shops, it needs to be configured correctly in order to allow high-risk payments.
We can help you connect Authorize.Net to the right merchant account
Our trusted, independent agents will ensure that your payment gateway and the merchant account it connects to are all pipe and glass friendly – at no direct cost to you.
Choosing the right payment processor is, of course, important for all high-risk businesses. However, it’s especially important for glass, pipe, and smoking accessory online sales since it’s a tightly regulated industry.
Can you use NMI for smoking accessory sites?
Another great solution for accepting online credit card payments on your smoking site is the NMI payment gateway. NMI’s multi-merchant account feature is unique and really sets it apart. This means that with NMI your smoking site could potentially sell tobacco products too – if configured correctly.
While there are many elements to take into consideration, NMI is generally a fantastic high-risk friendly gateway and it works with a range of platforms and site builders. For example, NMI works really well with WooCommerce. If you’re a Magento user, we have some good news on the processing front too. NMI is perfectly compatible with Magento, allowing you to sell high-risk products with ease once it’s all set up correctly.
If you run and manage many different sites, then NMI is probably ideal for you. It has a range of fantastic features and we’ve highlighted a selection of very useful NMI features here. It will make it so much easier to access and manage your different merchant accounts from a single login.
Authorize.Net or NMI for pipes and glassware – how to choose
As high-risk payment gateway experts, we’re often asked: “what is the best payment gateway for selling pipes and glass online?” However, that’s not always the most useful question. What might be more useful to know right now are questions like “can I use Authorize.Net with Squarespace,” or “how can I sell glass pipes on Shopify,” etc.
By addressing more specific questions, we can quickly start narrowing down the best pipe and glassware friendly payment gateways for your unique business.
For example, a great solution for selling smoking accessories like pipes, grinders, and glassware online could be Authorize.Net with Shopify. It does depend on your unique needs and circumstances though – you can learn more about using Shopify and Authorize.Net for high-risk sales here.
NMI and Authorize.Net are both great options for online headshops – with the right advice and setup. Integrating NMI or Authorize.Net with site builders and platforms like Wix or Squarespace can be done easily and affordably with the right payment processor. It all depends on your needs, ideal platform, and circumstances.
The most straightforward way to find the best payment gateway for your pipe and glassware site is to contact us for some free advice. You can reach us here or use our contact form at the bottom of this page.
Are you new to selling pipes and glass online?

Let our experts set up your online headshop’s processing
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 experienced 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 – at no cost to you.
When you first get in touch with us, a pipe and glass payment specialist will ask you some standard questions about your business. This will let them identify your best, most stable, and most affordable payment options quickly.
When in doubt, ask a qualified attorney
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 an excellent way to ensure that you don’t run into any unexpected hassle down the line.
The words and images on your 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 familiar terms can cause extra complexity. Let our experts review your site and give you a payment gateway quote at the same time – it can save you a lot of time and hassle.
Be careful of your 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 that 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 merely 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.

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.
Payment gateway, merchant account, and platform combinations
While this might seem like a given, you must be 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 send them qualified businesses. We enjoy helping new site owners regardless of whether or not we make money right away.
We have learned, over the many years we have been doing this, that the cliche ‘what goes around comes around’ really is true. When we help an 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 that these products need different treatment is due to differences in their risk levels.
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 would potentially be a great option in this case. 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 the carts and site builders that we provide payment gateway solutions for are e-commerce giants like Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, Wix, and Squarespace, to mention a few.
