    Hey all,

    I have a USA based herbal nutraceutical in development. It's a compliant, legal product in the USA, though it is technically banned for retail in the UK, however shipping from the USA into the UK is legal for personal consumption.

    HOWEVER, the issue I have is less to do with the legality of the ingredients and it is that EVERY payment processor (I really need a 3rd party like 2Checkout or someone) is telling me they are currently not accepting ANY sports supplements/herbal nutraceutical websites due to high risk.

    So I contacted maybe 20 or so high risk processors...who either are lame at responding and very slow, or sound incompetent and scammish.

    Any suggestions please hit me up, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    You won't find a processor unless you're doing over 50k/mth already

    You serious? Surely there must a payment processor out there somewhere that handles sports supplements/herbal supplements? It's a thriving industry...

    There's a high risk processing company called Market Engines that should be able to accommodate your request.
