The Challenge with High Risk Processing

Apart from the difficulties of obtaining business funds, investors, and commercial space during the start-up phase, operating a high-risk business also affects day-to-day operations. Payment processing, and in particular credit and debit card processing, can be challenging for CBD, headshop, and dispensary business owners.

For example, business owners may:

  • Have strict limitations on the number of transactions that can be processed per month
  • Be charged higher pricing for credit card processing
  • Be denied services completely
  • Unfortunately, many established credit card processors like PayPal and Stripe refuse to do business with high-risk companies, including CBD businesses. This can make it challenging to even operate the business on a daily basis.

Due to the nature of the business and the stringent legal restrictions on hemp and CBD products, all CBD businesses are considered to be high-risk. FDA regulations in the U.S. and other laws overseas also affect how other B2B companies interact with CBD businesses. CBD companies are a legal risk for lenders, banks, commercial property owners, and more until laws are once again revised in favor of responsible CBD sales and use.


Rejected? We can help.
