    Hi. I just received notice my processing account is being shut down so I have 2 weeks to find a new processor. I sell kratom on a website. Over 100K per month sales. I'm looking to stay fully within the US if it all possible. I will only take my processing overseas as a last resort if all else fails. Can someone steer me in the right direction? I am on the TMF list. Not that that matters most the time when processing for kratom. I think TMF'd is almost expected.

    Please PM me (or respond here).

    Thank you!!

    - Joe

    It's worthwhile to consider how you are positioning kratom as a product. Every credit card processor that I am familiar with prohibits the sale of any substance that is taken for it's psychoactive properties. I do purchase this product from time to time from vendors in canada, and the majority of them describe kratom as an aeromatic or botanical product. I'm not sure if there are rules on the forum about linking to these pages, but i'm sure if you google vendors you will see what I am talking about.

    Were you able to figure anything out? I am also looking my processor was taken down as well which is really upsetting any help would be appreciated I notice some vendors are putting the kratom on hidden pages within the website but not sure how that would actually work wouldn't the product in the cart still show up when the person pays??

    Try instabill.com they are one of the only long term processor that has been into shady and high risk business that I know of that may be able to help you, if they can't don't look any further no one can unless they are hiding it under the carpet and mix your transactions or use fake business description.

    Nah, nothing. Dead serious. Had some nice possibilities domestically... but nothing came about. Approval for offshore is pretty easy. It's not too tough to find offshore kratom accounts... just ask around. Instabill I believe has a solution offshore. I'm still looking domestically. Really don't want to go offshore. :(

    I don't think that would work long term. Maybe for a week or so until you get shut down. Because, yeah.... the items have to go thru checkout otherwise customers won't know what they bought.

    Sorry to bump an old thread but I am super curious if you found anything. Also currently looking for a domestic processor for Kratom.

    Still dead on my end. I gave up. Especially with the ban possibly coming up in December now, they've cracked down even more. Even CBD is nearly impossible to find domestically now, it's such a shame. Maybe you'll get luck and find a diamond in the rough... but I haven't.
