Here’s a brief explanation of some of the difficulties with selling herbal products online as it relates to getting payments processed.

Paypal

Paypal refuse to process anything related to herbal products and/or supplements. Over the past three years we have had seven Paypal accounts under different names, and they have all been closed. When that happens, we have to wait for 180 days (!!) to get the balance of the account paid to us. As of now, they owe us something in the order of $3000.

No more!

Credit Cards

Normal credit card processing companies like Stripe or Square won’t process transactions in the “herbal supplement” category either, similar to Paypal. Instead, what is required is a “high-risk processing account”, because the banks deem there to be a high risk of chargebacks (customers reversing their credit card payments) in this category.

In order to get a high-risk account I would have to be a US citizen (I’m German) with a long solid credit history based on a SSN, which I don’t have of course.

If by any chance you are in this industry and think you may have a solution we’d be most interested to hear from you! You’d be well compensated.

Better Alternative

Fortunately, we have CryptoCurrencies now. Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc, etc. Not only are there no transaction fees, the transactions are immediate. Making payments is as simple as using a credit card. You’ll need an account at an exchange though: it’s a simple one-time setup process (simpler than Paypal for example).

Coinbase at www.coinbase.com is the most popular currency exchange. Please take a look and enter a new age of cheap and immediate payments and money transfers.

I look forward to the day when Crypto reaches critical mass and we can all tell these banks to go take a hike!
