Aggregate companies such as PayPal, Stripe, or Square can’t get you the CBD merchant processing you need. Often times, these companies lure in CBD merchants with appealing “instant approval” offers. But weeks later, once the underwriting process has taken place and high risk CBD products are discovered, the road comes to an end. Once these companies are made aware that you are selling CBD on Shopify or on another ecommerce site, PayPal, Stripe, or Square, will freeze and shut down your account. These top payment processors often utilize this risk monitoring system by scanning all merchant accounts, evaluating processing history and seeing which qualify. When the business model is deemed high risk after initial approval, which is always the case with CBD oil merchant accounts, you can expect the account to be closed.

Hemp Merchant Account
Selling CBD online is a high risk business for more reasons than its association to cannabis. There are several other factors that deem CBD a high risk in the payment processing realm. First, an ecommerce CBD sale is an online sale. Meaning, the sale is processed as a “card not present transaction” which is inherently high risk payment processing. Additionally, high risk CBD businesses have very high discount rates and large security reserves (also known as a rolling reserve). A business is usually classified as a high risk merchant if the industry they’re in has a higher risk of fraud and chargebacks. In the case of being a CBD oil merchant, the high risk label is typically due to the business being a reputational and legal risk for banks and lenders. This is a result of the strictly enforced FDA regulations on CBD in the United States.
If you’re looking for CBD merchant processing, it’s important to understand why payment processors are often difficult to obtain (and retain) for sales in the CBD industry. CBD product sales are considered to be high risk in the online merchant account world due to the nature of how the oil is cultivated. CBD is a legal product. However, it is derived from the same plant, which breeds its regulated counterpart, cannabis. The very notion sends banks and lenders into high alert often resulting in your CBD oil merchant account being labeled high risk. Right now, CBD is categorized as a high risk business regardless of what kind of CBD products you carry in your online store.
A customer walks into your store, chooses the product they want to purchase and brings it up to the counter to buy it. You tell them the price, but then they hand you a credit card.
What should you look for in a processor?
Unlike other high risk processors, Shift does not charge massive monthly fees in addition to the per transaction fees. Minimal monthly fees means more money in your pocket.
