At Organic Payment Gateways, we have watched the CBD industry flourish and become one of the most exciting industries around. Even with the growth we’ve seen in recent years, there’s still plenty of contradictions when it comes to how new and existing CBD businesses can set up merchant accounts and payment gateways in order to accept credit cards online.

Our goal is to provide legal, hemp-derived CBD site owners the answers they need to set up an easy, reliable payment gateway on their existing website.

Here, we’ll go over one of the most misunderstood aspects of applying for a payment gateway: do you need a gateway only or a payment gateway merchant account combo?

If you are new to selling legal, hemp-derived, CBD online, our goal is to take some of the confusion out of setting up payments. What you’ll get out of it is that you’ll know exactly what you need before you apply. What we hope to achieve is that we’ll ideally save you hours of frustration and help prevent any unnecessary launch delays.

There are two types of payment processing needs

Solution 1 for CBD websites: gateway only

CBD businesses that have a merchant account but need a payment gateway to connect it to their shopping cart are often frustrated by the different terminology and various solutions promoted online.

Generally, site owners can apply for their payment gateway and merchant account from the same payment provider. Often CBD businesses do not even realize that the payment gateway is the software piece that connects to their shopping cart and the merchant account is the payment processing relationship that deposits into their regular business checking account.

If you already have a merchant account for your CBD site, for example, through a local credit union that does not have e-commerce expertise, you need a payment gateway like NMI, or, to connect that merchant account to your shopping cart.

We set up “gateway only” accounts that work with all major shopping carts including WooCommerce, Shopify, Clickfunnels, and dozens more.

Solution 2 for CBD websites: payment gateway and merchant account

Usually, new CBD businesses trying to connect a shopping cart to payment processing need both a merchant account and a payment gateway. Often, these are sold together as an “all-in-one” bundle, making the distinction between the two pieces even more unclear.

Organic Payment Gateways provides high-risk payment solutions to CBD and nutritional supplement companies across the US.

WooCommerce is a fantastic e-commerce plugin for WordPress with a massive user base across industries. It makes it easy for any WordPress site to transform into an e-commerce site, with all the features and abilities you’re looking for. However, using WooCommerce to sell various cannabidiol products online can be a challenge.

At Organic Payment Gateways, we believe every legal CBD business deserves the same chance at success as any other business.

Your ability to accept credit card payments online should not hold back your WooCommerce cannabidiol e-commerce site.

This is why we focus on making it as easy as possible for new and established businesses alike to set up their payment processing to handle high-risk payments in no time.

Why choose WordPress when you sell various CBD products?

WordPress is the most popular and common website platform out there today, which makes it easy to find help from people who are familiar with working with the platform. This is obviously a great benefit should you ever be looking for third-party website assistance. However, one of the main reasons that it’s so popular in the first place is because it makes it extremely easy to integrate third-party plugins due to its open-source nature. WordPress and WooCommerce allow you to effortlessly expand and add to both the features and design of your site.

When you sell different types of cannabidiol products, on the other hand, the most important thing to consider might very well be how to accept CBD payments using WooCommerce.

WooCommerce makes it possible to integrate various “high-risk” merchant accounts and payment gateways to your WooCommerce site.

We love the WooCommerce-WordPress combination for different reasons, but its user-friendliness and compatibility with high-risk credit card processing is certainly at the top of our list.

Processing credit cards online for cannabidiol products

As a WooCommerce site owner selling different types of cannabidiol products, you’ll find that you get a lot of freedom when using WordPress and WooCommerce to run your site. It’s also a great fit with the payment gateways we provide, which in turn will make your credit card processing not only easy but also safe and sustainable in the long run.

Finding a payment gateway for CBD e-commerce can be a real pain if you start on the wrong foot. Many CBD site owners find that standard payment processing services, like PayPal or Stripe, simply won’t work for them. It’s a very frustrating situation to be in. It can also become costly, both in time and money for lost sales, if you temporarily lose your ability to accept credit cards for your products.

This is why it’s so important to know from day one that you need high-risk friendly credit card processing when you sell cannabidiol products online. We can help.

At Organic Payment Gateways, we know that the CBD payment gateways we offer will work for your business. You’ll be able to accept credit card payments on your WooCommerce site for all your different legal cannabidiol products with ease. It’s our goal to make online payments as easy as possible while making sure you have the freedom to choose the platform you love.

Organic Payment Gateways fits perfectly with WooCommerce CBD sales

The WooCommerce plugin is a great choice when you want to use WordPress to sell various cannabidiol products online. However, as a high-risk business, you’ll still need to integrate specialized payment processing services to accept credit cards for your products safely and sustainably in the long run.

When you use one of the gateways we offer, you can rest easy knowing you won’t have any problems when it comes to accepting payments for your cannabidiol-based products.

Selling hemp-based products on ClickFunnels, or any other platform can be a real struggle if you don’t have the right payment gateway and processing set up.

Finding the right merchant account and payment gateway can be complicated if you’re not very familiar with what to look out for. Even small details can make a big difference when it comes to finding the best way to accept credit card payments for hemp products online – let alone what platform is best and whether it will work with the merchant services you’ve found.

We love helping entrepreneurs in the exciting industries of online hemp, supplements, and CBD sales. We want to do all we can to make it easier for you to sell the products your customers love.

ClickFunnels has one of the best all-in-one funnel creation solutions out there, and you won’t have to worry about being able to use them to sell your products effectively.

At Organic Payment Gateways, we’re firm believers that all legal businesses deserve the same chance to succeed and grow. Hemp products are increasing in popularity, and people love your hemp products. Your ability to accept credit card payments shouldn’t hold you back, and we’re here to help. If you’re new to selling hemp goods online or you’re looking for a new or different payment gateway, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll discuss ClickFunnels, hemp e-commerce, and what to keep in mind when setting up your payment processing.

What ClickFunnels is best at

ClickFunnels is a great e-commerce software solution; it allows you to create webpages and landing pages in a funnel system that you can automate and manage with minimal effort. Creating beautiful landing pages that convert leads is crucial for any e-commerce site. However, where ClickFunnels excels is that it makes it very easy for you to market your products. Your hemp-based e-commerce site, therefore, easily integrates with various social media. With beautiful, converting landing pages, what more could you want?

Any business should have the opportunity to run their e-commerce site as smoothly as possible. The good news is that ClickFunnels is very intuitive, simple to use, and focuses on making the journey from discovery to purchase as short as possible to increase conversions. One way they achieve this is through on-page payments on the landing pages. However, and perhaps more importantly, when selling hemp goods, is that you can easily set up ClickFunnels with high-risk payment gateways (we’ll get back to why this is important very soon).

What you need to know about accepting credit cards for hemp online

When selling any kind of hemp or CBD based products, you face a range of challenges. The most defining task, beyond qualified legal advice, is probably finding a merchant service provider that’s ready to help you accept payments. This is because ever-changing regulations make traditional merchant service providers, banks, and financial institutions a little wary. This can become frustrating when you’re just starting out, and you’re unaware that standard merchant service providers are either unlikely or unable to help.

We believe that when you’re selling legal hemp products, like oils and cosmetics, you’re selling a product that people love and are actively looking for. It makes no sense that you should be hindered by your ability to accept payments for your products. This is why we’re providing articles like this one. We want to make sure you have the information you need upfront to make the best decisions you can for your business.

High-risk payment gateways are a must

What you might already know is that you need a high-risk payment gateway to sell CBD products on ClickFunnels. The reality is, if you sell any hemp products, regardless of their CBD or THC content, you still should choose payment processing carefully.

The fact that ClickFunnels makes it easy to market, manage, and sell your products and that it’s compatible with our high-risk payment gateways make it a great platform for hemp e-commerce, CBD-based or not.

Why Organic Payment Gateways is a great fit for ClickFunnels

At Organic Payment Gateways, we will take the time to make sure the payment gateway we recommend works perfectly with your business and ClickFunnels. Accepting credit cards for hemp goods on ClickFunnels should be simple, quick, and last for the long haul. We’re here to help you make that a reality.

Why create your online CBD skincare shop with Shopify?

We’re big believers in freedom of choice and simplicity. You’ll get both in abundance when you create your e-commerce store through Shopify and combine it with one of our recommended CBD payment gateways.
Shopify is one of the most popular e-commerce platforms available.

In addition to a very robust platform, it offers all the out-of-the-box bells and whistles you’d expect from an e-commerce site builder. Even without adding additional features through paid or free plugins/apps, Shopify gives you a lot of value.

Customizing your Shopify CBD product site through third-party e-commerce apps

There are plenty of great apps you can buy or download for free on Shopify that can add to the features and abilities of your e-commerce site. For example, there are apps that allow you to dive into the exact nature of your customers. This will help you better understand who buys your products, which in turn can help you better cater to your ideal customer.

The biggest benefit of Shopify is that they make it exceptionally easy to start selling and accepting payments for your products. That said, when you sell CBD skincare products on Shopify, there’s a couple of extra steps involved before you can accept credit card payments. You need to use the right gateway and integrate it properly (we’ll discuss this more directly below). If this sounds complicated – don’t worry! We’re more than happy to give you any assistance you need, and we can even set it all up for you. Simply get in touch with us here and we’ll help you start accepting payments for CBD skincare products on Shopify.

Accepting credit card payments for CBD skincare products using Shopify

As a CBD skincare and hemp product site owner, you need to know that you’re running what’s called a high-risk business. We won’t dive too deeply into the specifics here, but you can learn more about the basics of selling CBD skincare products in general in this article. However, the general take-away is simply that being a high-risk business limits your options when it comes to merchant service providers that are able or willing to offer you their services.

This can be extremely frustrating when you’re starting to sell cannabidiol products online. This can often result in settling for gateways that are more expensive than necessary. Or you might end up using a service like PayPal or Stripe – which can cause entirely different issues.

The good news is that Shopify is compatible with third-party, CBD friendly payment gateways. Secondly, the payment gateways we will pair you with work perfectly for CBD skincare sales and integrate smoothly with Shopify.
In other words, with Organic Payment Gateways you can start processing credit and debit card payments for your CBD skincare products on Shopify. We’ll also ensure that you get the help and support you need and deserve. We’ll take the time to ensure that the payment gateway we recommend works perfectly once it’s set up and fully integrated with Shopify.

CBD beauty sales the basics - Organic Payment Gateways - content imageAll legal businesses deserve the same opportunity for success. Processing debit and credit card payments online shouldn’t be a problem for your business. This is why we’ll set you up with a payment gateway that specializes in handling payments for online CBD beauty product sales. Our mission is to make your life easier.

Have you recently started selling CBD beauty products or topicals online? Or are you not overly experienced in online sales? Then you might wonder why finding merchant services for your business can be so frustrating. This is one of the reasons why we wrote this post. We want to provide you with the basics of online CBD beauty product sales.

Why selling CBD beauty products online can be difficult

When selling cosmetics, skincare, and other CBD-based beauty products, you’re considered a high-risk merchant. While that might sound a bit strong, the simple fact is that you’ll face some challenges that more common businesses don’t.

Anyone selling products that contain cannabidiol (CBD) – even CBD with little or no THC, need to operate within a relatively tight legal framework.

There are local, state, and federal laws, pending legislation and hundreds of regulations that apply to CBD sales nationwide. This is why we strongly recommend that you seek out qualified legal counsel before starting your online CBD store.

Being “high-risk” in the eyes of most payment gateway and merchant account providers doesn’t mean there’s no way for you to accept credit and debit card payments online. At Organic Payment Gateways, we will pair you with a CBD-friendly payment gateway that will help you process payments for your CBD beauty products. Not only that, but our goal is to also allow you to use the site builder and platform you already know and love!

What you need to know about online CBD beauty sales

When you first started building your site, you may have been surprised to find out that even choosing your site builder was difficult. Unfortunately, selling CBD beauty products means there are fewer site builder and e-commerce platforms that will work for you. Often, business types like yours find themselves on the prohibited business lists of many platforms.

That said, there are still plenty of great platforms that will work – when you set everything up correctly. We’ll be able to make it possible for you to use the platform you love! Among the platforms, e-commerce software, and shopping carts that others have successfully used for CBD beauty product sales, you’ll find:

These are all great platforms/carts that generally make it possible for you to sell your CBD products easily. Still, you need to have a high-risk friendly CBD payment gateway set up to make sure you can sell successfully over time with any of them. Additionally, some platforms have terms and conditions that discuss CBD, some are enforced, and some, according to the site builder’s tech support themselves, are unenforced. So, it really makes sense to do your own research, review T&C’s and talk with a site builder’s support staff before spending time and money building your site.

Our mission is simple –  make it as easy as possible for CBD and supplement site owners to accept credit card payments for their products while using the platform they love.

What to avoid when selling CBD-based beauty products online

As we’re covering the basics here, we want to quickly outline some absolute “don’ts” of CBD beauty sales.

  • Do not use a payment aggregator (such as PayPal, or Stripe) without getting real confirmation from them that your product is 100% allowed. You do not want to risk a shutdown account or held funds.
  • Do not sign up for a processor because you read online they have a “Beta” program for CBD unless you have specifically approved your URL and products.
  • Do not rush things and use a standard low-risk merchant account even though you know it’s risky.  You could get shut down and that could haunt you as it will show when you apply elsewhere.

The reason why we want to underline these things is that they can have a very negative impact on your ability to run your business. Unfortunately, we’ve come across hundreds of online business owners who’ve had their funds frozen, accounts closed, or temporarily been unable to sell their products. It’s a horrible position to be in, and we can help you avoid it.

The reason we’ve been able to help so many site owners in these positions find solutions and get their business back on track is that we know the payment gateway business and we know what solutions work best for online CBD beauty products.

The way we achieve this is by setting you up with specialized, CBD-friendly payment gateways that allow you to securely process payments. The added bonus is that we’re also able to make sure it works perfectly with the software and site builders you’re familiar with and love using. If you need any help finding a payment gateway that works for your CBD beauty sales – don’t hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to helping your topical CBD business thrive!
