Payment gateways for probiotics

by Organic Payment Gateways

If you sell probiotics like Bacillus, Lactobacillus, or Streptococcus online, Organic Payment Gateways will set you up with high-risk-friendly payment processing that’s reliable and works with your preferred site builder and shopping cart.

Probiotics are some of the most common nutritional supplements used in the United States. Many people take them for digestive health and other purposes like immune support, and more customers are turning to online shopping for the convenience and large selection of products to be found.

Without a stable, affordable way to accept credit cards, online probiotic businesses cannot survive, let alone thrive. Unfortunately, many common payment gateways consider probiotics “high-risk” and therefore prohibit them from processing payments.

Why are probiotics often considered high-risk by payment providers?

 It might seem odd that selling probiotics would often require high-risk payment processing. The microorganisms found in yogurt don’t exactly conjure up an image of risk, do they? Well, in this case, the “risk” is not due to the products – you already know your customers appreciate them. It’s really more about the nutritional supplement industry itself. Supplement businesses can be more prone to regulatory issues and even chargebacks.

Sometimes, providers like Stripe, Shopify Payments, or PayPal can even lump traditional supplements into the dreaded “pseudo pharmaceutical” category. This means that many online supplement businesses need affordable, stable, high-risk payment processing in order to thrive.
