Payment gateways for weight loss products

by Organic Payment Gateways

At Organic Payment Gateways, we help health and wellness websites – including those that sell weight-loss products, supplements, and nutraceuticals – affordably and easily obtain the payment gateway they need to process credit cards online.

Our team’s expertise, patience, and one on one help will allow you to process payments using your existing website builder and shopping cart.

The online weight loss products business is growing by the year, but many website owners still have trouble finding reliable payment processing.

The biggest challenge is due to your “nutra” product being labeled “high-risk” or, worse yet, a “pseudo-pharmaceutical” by payment gateways like Stripe, PayPal, or Shopify Payments.  

Ingredients like garcinia cambogia, green tea, green coffee, raspberry ketones, glucomannan, bitter orange, sphaeranthus indicus, and forskolin can cause serious merchant account and payment gateway interruptions unless they are set up correctly in the beginning. This is our specialty.

We help weight loss websites by providing specialized product payment processing that can work with nearly all shopping carts and website builders.

Weight loss products and high-risk payment processing

Weight loss supplements can come in different forms, such as pills, powders, or drinks, and can contain various ingredients, such as plant extracts like garcinia cambogia.

When you think of “high-risk” products, you’re probably more likely to think of things like tobacco or alcohol, since they are from industries that are highly regulated. With weight loss products, it’s sort of the other way around – the supplement industry is not very regulated at all, and so companies that sell these products can be at a higher risk of experiencing chargebacks.

Also, sometimes a supplement company will choose to make inaccurate or outlandish claims about what their products can do, which can, unfortunately, give the entire industry a bad name. These factors contribute to businesses in the weight loss industry being categorized as high-risk, and, as a result, most online payment processors (such as PayPal or Stripe) often won’t work with you.

But don’t let the high-risk label worry you. Reach out to us any time with questions about how we can help your business set up a payment gateway that works for you.

The benefits of specialized weight loss payment processing

Sometimes supplement businesses, such as weight loss websites, end up with their ability to process payments shut down if they try to use a popular payment processor that doesn’t accept high-risk products. If this has happened to you, don’t worry – Organic Payment Gateways can save you the headache of having to wade through the fine print on site after site just to find a payment processor that will accept your weight loss products.

We can get you set up with payment processing that works for your business, whether you’re on Shopify, WooCommerce, Wix, or another website builder like GoDaddy or ClickFunnels.
