    How do I accept CBD payments?

    CBD payments can be accepted through a number of methods, including credit cards, debit cards, and bank transfers. Many CBD companies also offer payment processing services that can be used to accept CBD payments.

    Are CBD & Hemp Sales Considered HighRisk?

    CBD and hemp sales are considered highrisk. This is because CBD and hemp products are not currently regulated by the FDA, so banks and credit card processors view them as a highrisk investment. To help mitigate the risk associated with these types of sales, its important to partner with a highrisk merchant account provider that has experience working with CBD and hemp businesses.

    A good provider will be able to help you set up your account in a way that minimizes your risk and maximizes your chances of being approved for a merchant account.

    What Other Types of CBD & Hemp Sales Are Considered HighRisk?

    In addition to CBD and hemp sales, any type of sale that involves a CBD or hemp product is considered highrisk. This includes sales of CBD oil, CBD edibles, CBD topicals, CBD tinctures, and any other type of CBD product. Its also important to note that sales of hemp flower are considered highrisk. This is because hemp flower contains a higher concentration of CBD than other parts of the hemp plant. 

    Will My CBD or Hemp Business Be Automatically Approved for a HighRisk Merchant Account?

    Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that your CBD or hemp business will be automatically approved for a highrisk merchant account. Each merchant account application is evaluated on a casebycase basis, so there is no guarantee that your business will be approved.

    However, there are a few things you can do to increase your chances of being approved for a merchant account. First, make sure to partner with a highrisk merchant account provider that has experience working with CBD and hemp businesses. Second, make sure to provide as much information as possible when you apply for your account. The more information you provide, the better your chances of being approved.


    Being a high-risk merchant doesn’t mean your business should expect to receive a second-rate payment processing solution.
