Because of the restrictions that still surround legal cannabis products, many online CBD store owners have not had good luck with most well-known payment processors such as PayPal or Stripe, which prohibit high-risk products like CBD. Organic Payment Gateways takes pride in helping high-risk business owners find the right payment gateway and merchant account for their business so that they can accept credit cards online for their legal CBD products. We also help integrate payment gateways with site builders and shopping carts for a smooth transition to high-risk-friendly online selling.

Supplement payment gateways for ShipBob client

Online sales of supplements and other nutritional products have been increasing a lot over the past few years. But what many supplement website owners find is that, even though their customers love their products, major payment processors often do not. Because of the “high-risk” designation, nutritional supplements usually land on the “prohibited products” list for PayPal, Stripe, and others. Fortunately, Organic Payment Gateways has lots of experience at finding payment gateways and merchant accounts that work just right for nutritional supplement websites.

Some online merchants who sell supplements and natural remedies start out small and may not look into partnering with a fulfillment company until they reach a certain level of growth. Others start out bigger and want to work with a fulfillment company from day one.

Regardless of where you’re at in your business journey, working with a fulfillment company can give you as a business owner some relief from having to do everything on your own, without having to hire additional staff. Below, we’ll share some considerations for choosing a fulfillment company that is appropriate for your products and your business’s well-being.

High-risk considerations

Supplements and natural remedy products are often considered a “high-risk” product type, and for this reason supplements are not allowed under some fulfillment companies’ policies. Even though they might be harder to find, reliable supplement-friendly fulfillment companies do exist, which is why we’ve put together some tips for finding the one that works best for your supplement business.

Here are some of the most important qualities that we’ve seen in good fulfillment companies, so keep these different aspects of business in mind when you make your choice.

Allowing supplements as a product type

This one is obvious, but it’s still the best place to begin. Any fulfillment company you are considering for your supplement business must allow your specific products. And this is one area where you don’t want to make assumptions or settle for an indirect or unclear statement. The company you’re considering should be able to verify, in writing, that they allow the types of supplements and natural remedies that you carry so you’ll know your products are accepted before you begin working with them.

Transparent pricing

Pricing for fulfillment companies can get complicated because they cover so many different parts of the order-fulfillment process: storage, picking, packaging, shipping, reporting, and more. When you are considering working with a company, it’s important that you find out exactly how much each of these services costs, and whether those charges are per order, per item, per month, or based on something else.

For example, what is their storage charge per pallet? How much does each pick cost? You’ll also want to know what types of shipping they offer. When a fulfillment company is up-front about its costs and about which services are included in those costs and which aren’t, it makes it easier for you to compare companies and make an accurate decision about which one is best for your supplement business.

Software integration

For your order processing to be seamless, it’s important for your fulfillment company’s software to integrate with what your business uses, whether that’s a popular shopping cart like Shopify or WooCommerce, or other software. That way you can transition easily to working with the company without having to switch to another platform. Also, think about what other kinds of technology you would like to see from a fulfillment company. Do they offer order-management software and other things that are useful to you, such as analytics?

Return management

Returns are an inevitable part of selling products online, even though you work hard to exceed customer expectations. Look for a fulfillment company that manages returns in an effective and affordable way and gets the returned products back to your inventory efficiently. Find out what the costs are for things like return shipping and restocking.

Scalability

Regardless of your business’s current size and reach, growth often means expanding into new markets and locations. Make sure that you choose a fulfillment company that is able to grow with your supplement business, at whatever speed that ends up being. If your fulfillment company has the scale and resources to easily facilitate your growth, you’ll be in a much better position to expand smoothly when the time comes, and without added costs.

Customer Service

You will want to be able to communicate easily with your fulfillment company. Look for a company that makes it easy and free to get in touch with them and offers helpful support when you need it. Also, if a fulfillment company has customer service representatives at each of its warehouse locations, it will make it easier for any issues that come up to get solved more quickly and effectively.

Customization

The experience your customers have when they open an order is important – it can even affect your business’s reviews and referrals. If you have packaging that uses specific designs or branding logos, or other ways to use packaging to make your customer’s orders special, make sure that this is something your fulfillment company can accommodate at a reasonable cost. Custom packaging and branding can help you stand out from other supplement businesses and can even affect return rates in a positive way.

No matter what stage your CBD e-commerce business is in, you may be considering partnering with a fulfillment company so that you can streamline the shipping process and focus more of your time on other aspects of the business. Some CBD businesses start out small and may only come to this decision after being in business for a long time. Others start out big and know from the get-go that they’ll want to find a reliable fulfillment company to do business with right away. Whatever your situation, working with a fulfillment company can allow you to reach a satisfying balance between the burden of having to do everything yourself and the expense of hiring more staff. In this article, we want to help you with this decision by pointing out some important things to look for in a fulfillment company, especially for CBD business owners.

Potential challenges

As CBD business owners know, selling products from a high-risk industry can come with challenges, and you will tend to hear the word “no” a lot more often than traditional businesses. This also applies to finding a fulfillment company, since many do not allow high-risk products like CBD, and among those that do, figuring out which of them would be a good fit for you can be tricky. But CBD-friendly fulfillment companies are out there, and below, we’ll share some considerations for choosing a fulfillment company that is appropriate for your products and your CBD business’s bottom line.

Allowing CBD products

This one is a no-brainer, but it’s still the best place to start. Make sure that any fulfillment company you are considering for your CBD business allows CBD products. And don’t settle for a casual, over-the-phone affirmation – before you begin your business relationship, make sure to have a verification from the company, in writing, that they allow the types of CBD products that you carry so you’ll have up-front assurance that your products are accepted.

Software integration

Whether your CBD business uses WooCommerce, Shopify, or another major shopping cart or other software, you’ll want to make sure that any fulfillment company you are considering uses software that integrates with yours. That way your order processing will be seamless, and you can continue to use the software you are familiar with. It’s also helpful to look at what types of technology the company uses and what they offer business owners in terms of order-management software and analytics.

Transparent Pricing

Fulfillment companies cover a lot of different aspects of order processing, from storing your specific products in a warehouse, to picking, packaging, shipping, reporting, and more. That’s why it’s important that your fulfillment company is up-front with you about exactly how much each of these services will cost and whether each cost is per item, per order, or based on other factors like time or item weight (depending on the service). You don’t want to be surprised by hidden fees or to discover later that a necessary service is not included. When a company’s pricing and services are clearly spelled out, you’ll have the information you need to compare companies accurately and make the best decision for your CBD business.

Return management

Returns are, unfortunately, a part of doing business, as much as you work hard to keep your customers satisfied. How will your fulfillment company manage returns? What costs are associated with return shipping and restocking? Look for a company that offers affordable returns and is able to efficiently get your returned products back into your inventory.

Customer service

If you have questions or if complications come up over the course of business, you’ll want a fulfillment company that has customer support available when you need it. In addition, look for a company that has representatives at each of their warehouse locations so that no matter where your orders or specific inventory items are at a given point, someone will be right there to assist in solving problems that may arise.

Scalability

Whether your CBD business is small and locally focused or large with a broader reach, a good fulfillment company should enable you to expand easily if necessary. You may start small but reach a point where you’re ready to grow into new locations, and you’ll be in a much better position with a fulfillment company that has the network and capabilities to facilitate your business’s expansion without extra expenses.

Customization

Do you prefer to ship orders using boxes or envelopes with specific logos or designs, or do you have other ways to make your packages look special on the inside and outside? This can affect your customers’ experience in a positive way, and when customers have a good experience opening their orders, they’re more likely to give good reviews and referrals. If custom packaging and branding options are important to you, look for a fulfillment company that provides these services at an affordable cost.

Organic Payment Gateways, accredited by the BBB and a member of the National Hemp Association, is glad to put our experience to use in helping high-risk business owners access the payment solutions they need to keep their businesses thriving.

What are Delta 8 and Delta 10?

What does it mean for my online business to be considered high risk?

It might seem like a negative label, but it’s not as bad as it sounds. All it means is that you’re selling products from a regulated industry, which would also be the case for CBD products and nutritional supplements, among others.
