The Shopify WordPress plugin and high-risk merchants

A powerful e-commerce combo

Did you know, one of the most streamlined, feature rich, high-risk compatible, and most popular shopping cart / hosting solutions can now be integrated with one of the most popular website platforms in the world? That’s correct, Shopify and WordPress work together using Shopify’s plugin for WordPress.

Customize and shine with WordPress

WordPress is enjoyed by millions of website owners for the ease of use it affords to even most novice webmaster. Its simplicity, however, does not bring the high-risk e-commerce restrictions often associated with other user-friendly platforms. On the contrary, it’s applications are virtually limitless through the addition of plugins that expand its capabilities. And one of these plugins now allows the integration of the Shopify cart into the WordPress platform.

WordPress is one of the most versatile website platforms out there, and its customization is completely in the hands of the business owner. Take some time and find useful widgets and plugins that are compatible with Shopify and you can really expand the functionality of your website. Another benefit of using WordPress is the abundance of new and updated themes. WordPress has themes for every type of website you can think of, and then you can customize it as you like.

Discover the power of Shopify

Shopify is loved by many of our high-risk clients in the online vape, FFL, and cigar industries for its intuitive shopping cart and easy-to-manage product and order management features which allow merchants to keep track of inventory, set prices, run promotions, keep customer records, and give customers a seamless buying experience, not to mention their beautiful site designs.

The best part is how inexpensive and easy it is to incorporate a Shopify button on your WordPress site. For roughly 10 bucks a month or so, you can add Shopify’s top-of-the-line e-commerce functionality to your any WordPress site. List an unlimited number of products, if you got it, sell it! No more worrying about checkout security, Shopify is one of the biggest names in e-commerce, and with that kind of attention, you need heavy cyber-security, which Shopify delivers for each of its clients. International sales are simplified with currency and tax support for a variety of foreign customers. Additionally, you will receive frequent and accurate analytics and reports to improve your website’s performance, conversion rates, sales, and profits. Shopify and WordPress are a powerful pair.

Shopify, WordPress and high-risk e-commerce

Shopify works a little differently for high-risk merchants. Although it is compatible with 70+ gateways, merchants that sell products such as nutraceuticals, cigars, firearms, electronic cigarettes, or other items in a long list of high-risk categories need to set up a gateway processing solution separately, and correctly. (hint, we can help)

Does this mean that these merchants have to give up one or both of these popular platforms? By no means!
