    Happy Friday,

    Does anyone know of any payment processors that would accept a online US smoke shop? I tried 2CheckOut but they denied me this morning stating I was not in compliance with the prohibited products list.

    Currently have PayPal but trying to move away as fast as possible before I run into issues. I did look through a few other post but most were a few years old and may not be relevant.

    Thank you!

    To be honest I never thought of that.... This isn't an actual storefront though. Its 100% online drop shipping.

    Smoke shop as in weed?

    Why not call some others that have brick and mortars and see who they are using?

    You'll find some that will help and if lucky you'll run into one of my family members that has a brick and mortar and is killing it.

    2CO won't allow that as you know but I am sure there are processors that will.

    See what others online are doing for their payment processors.

    It might cost you a few dollars to research but I am sure you'll be able to find several payment processors.

    I’ve done quite a few smoke shop sites.
    Typically I recommend they use a local guy and link it to authorize.net for the payment portal.

    they typically classify the business as a gift shop, when working with the local guy. Most of those local
    Guys will wing it and secure the deal, since it’s money for their pocket
