Delta 8 and Delta 10 are some of the newer cannabis products sold online. Because of this, finding a stable payment gateway that integrates with most major shopping carts and website builders can be tricky – without the right advice.

Similar to business owners looking to accept payments for traditional CBD or process credit cards online for THC-0 – Delta 8 and Delta 10 website owners need to be extremely cautious regarding the payment gateway and merchant account they choose.
What are Delta 8 and Delta 10?
Delta 8 and Delta 10 are cannabinoid compounds that can be used to produce many of the same types of products that are made from CBD, including oils, topicals, and ingestibles.
Even with restrictions in some states, the popularity of Delta 8 and 10 is rising. The advent of new Delta products presents an opportunity for existing CBD business owners to diversify their product offerings and for new online merchants to break into the market.
One thing that veteran and beginner website owners have in common is the need for a reliable way to accept online payments for their products. With that in mind, here are some considerations for high-risk business owners selling (or looking to sell) Delta 8 and Delta 10 products online.
Certificates of Analysis (COAs) are required for Delta 8 and Delta 10 payment processing
To process credit card payments for your legal cannabis products, you will need to make sure that every product you offer has a Certificate of Analysis (COA) from an independent lab. A COA shows that the product label gives accurate information about the product’s contents, which is essential for your business’s integrity and your customers’ peace of mind.
It’s also essential that your Delta 8 and Delta 10 products be of the legal, hemp-derived variety. Even if you aren’t in doubt about the legality of the products you offer, you should always consult with a lawyer before starting a legal cannabis business to ensure your store complies with laws and regulations.
What does it mean for my online business to be considered high-risk?
The term “high-risk payment processing” may 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.
In the case of Delta 8 and Delta 10 products, once you have done your due diligence legally (please sit with an attorney before selling any regulated products online), the biggest hurdle with the “high-risk” label will likely be your ability to accept credit card payments for your Delta 8 and Delta 10 products in a way that integrates smoothly with your existing website.
Fortunately, Organic Payment Gateways makes it simple to find payment processing that is right for you and your customers. We aim to help you sell the products your customers love – using the website builder you love.
Why do I need a high-risk payment gateway for Delta 8 and Delta 10?
Most online store owners begin their high-risk business like anyone else would – with a website built on their preferred platform. However, many find out the hard way that the payment gateway that comes built into their site builder does not allow high-risk products.
Delta 8 and Delta 10 products are not compatible with most major payment processors, like PayPal, Stripe, and Square. These are usually the processors that power the built-in payment gateways on popular shopping carts, even if they have different names.
Some high-risk business owners have even had to deal with having their accounts shut down and their money held. If this has happened to you, Organic Payment Gateways is here to help businesses like yours find reliable payment processing that aligns with the specific types of Delta products you offer.
We believe you should be able to accept payments for legal Delta 8 and Delta 10 products online using the tools that work best for you, whether that’s Shopify, Wix, WooCommerce, or others. You don’t have to rebuild your site on a different platform just because the out-of-the-box payment processor is incompatible with your product type.
Organic Payment Gateways can also provide high-risk-friendly merchant account recommendations for websites that need an account compatible with the Delta 8 and Delta 10 products you offer. In addition, we respond to new requests quickly and can set you up with whatever pieces of the payment solution puzzle you need to operate without fear of shut-down accounts.
For high-risk website owners, navigating a regulated industry to offer new cannabis products like those made with Delta 8 and Delta 10 comes with enough challenges; having to experiment to find the right payment processor doesn’t have to be one of them.
